Moanalua Gardens home brings value

Earlier this month, I blogged about Kanu Hawaii’s Energy Challenge, where residents are asked to consciously conserve energy throughout July. But if your home is outfitted like this Moanalua Gardens home, you could conserve energy every day.

This 2,960 square-foot home has been fully upgraded with the solar and photovoltaic panels, so clean energy is produced and stored in the system and helps cut down on electricity bills. (Click here for details.)

The layout is airy and open with valley and city views from the expansive lanai, so hopefully there’s less need for air conditioning—another step in conserving energy.

This home was designed for the conservative consumer; in addition to a lower electric bill, the three-bedroom, two-bath downstairs is currently used as a month-to-month rental, so you have a tenant built in. The four-bedroom, two-bathroom upstairs is vacant.

There’s also a lot of storage, so you can keep the open layout clear, and a two-car garage (hopefully you use it for your cars, not storage).

Money talk: $797,000 fee simple
