SmartBlock Communities are designed to ease the burden of rising utility and mobility costs, while reducing local pollution levels. SBC is dedicated to providing access to affordable living, not just affordable housing.
SmartBlock Communities (SBC) is a think and do tank that demonstrates an affordable, high performance, distributed-energy and water platform that can be scaled and replicated anywhere – a promising business solution to the multi-trillion dollar challenge of creating sustainable cities, nationally and globally.
SBC actively partners with experts in affordable housing, green building, community development, finance, government, and academia to ensure a wide base of interests are represented and the latest technology is utilized in each project.
Each SmartBlock Community benefits from:
- Solar-generated electricity
- Local energy storage
- Islandable next-generation microgrid technology
- Energy and water efficient appliances and fixtures
- Passive home construction
- Shared electric mobility
- Greywater reuse, rooftop rain harvesting, and stormwater management
SBC designs systems that operate and manage the full span of energy, water, waste-water, and mobility flows post-construction, in order to optimize resource efficiencies and resource savings over the lifecycle of the buildings.
