Once again, California seems to be leading the way in green building initiatives. Friday’s New York Times has published a video article on Carsten Crossings, a subdivision outside of Sacramento that has incorporated roof-integrated solar power on all of its homes, reducing energy bills by approximately 40 percent. Other options available include soy-based insulation and tankless water heaters. While the homes’ aesthetics have not improved upon the typical builders’ subdivision, Grupe Company has priced these homes comparable to non-green homes in the area.

Check out the video (pictured at right) and related article, via nytimes.com.
