Millican Reserve has struck an agreement with EcoSmart Solution to provide its EcoSmart GeoGrid, new geothermal infrastructure, solar PV systems, and energy monitoring and optimization to up to 2,000+ residential units at the renowned College Station reserve. With their zero-energy capable homes, new Millican Reserve homeowners will experience very low or nil utility expenses and a much lower carbon footprint; each home will be one of Texas’ most energy-efficient residences.
Millican Reserve is a Master Planned Community near College Station, Texas, about 10 miles southeast of Texas A&M University. The 2,500-acre community site will have a combination of residential residences, commercial, civic, and open space, as well as stores, restaurants, and a convention centre with overnight lodging.
Millican Reserve is being developed with the goal of creating “a healthy community around nature,” according to the community developers. Millican Reserve aspires to be a national leader in energy conservation and sustainability and is an ideal partner for the EcoSmart Solution approach to master planning that is smart and sustainable.
EcoSmart Solution will establish a master energy plan for the community and apply its cutting-edge technology program, which includes the utilization of geothermal and solar energy, as well as energy monitoring and management, to build zero-energy homes. Residents of Millican Reserve will be able to substantially reduce their energy bills, make a difference for the environment, and add value to their houses, similar to the award-winning Whisper Valley community in Austin, Texas.
“We immediately recognized that EcoSmart Solution’s ethos matched ours,” said Jack McFarlane, Millican Reserve partner. “They believe in creating a more sustainable future for our residents in an affordable way, which is one of our important goals at Millican Reserve.”
“We are very excited to bring our technologies to Millican Reserve,” said John Towle, CEO of EcoSmart Solution. “This development will be unique and set a new standard for environmental sensitivity and energy conservation in the state of Texas.”
“We are witnessing a massive shift in land development and homebuying trends,” said Towle. “Consumers are demanding sustainable and ecologically friendly living.” EcoSmart Solution provides this in an affordable, renewable and carbon-free manner. “We’re excited to partner with Millican Reserve to jointly implement our compatible visions and make this a model for future community developments across the country.”
