KB Home Offers Wiring for Electric Vehicle Charging
KB Home will begin offering an option to pre-wire its new Built to Order homes to accommodate charging stations for homeownersâ€™ electric vehicles.The move comes from KB Home's market surveys that showed buyers want energy efficient features that save them money, the company said.
This new earth-friendly option is designed to ease the future installation of a station to charge an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle conveniently at home.
Several major automakers are rolling out plug-in hybrid or fully electric cars in the next two years.
“This is just one of many innovative and earth-friendly options that homeowners can choose from as part of KB Home’s Built to Order experience. It’s a great feature for homebuyers who currently drive electric cars, or for those who want to build their new home to accommodate these cars in the future,” said Jeffrey Mezger, president and chief executive officer of KB Home.
The pre-wire option is now available to KB Home homebuyers nationwide.
