Building EI

Introducing energy independent homes and communities.

EI Communities

August Homes is developing the first Energy Independent (EI) community in the DC area, and one of the first EI communities in the nation. 

Energy independence is no longer a distant dream. It is achievable, practical and increasingly becoming a necessity.

An EI (Energy Independent) community is resilient, even during the harshest of storms. The community can power itself. It uses power from the grid, but does not rely on it.

August  EI

An Energy Independent (EI) home focuses on high-performance, enhanced indoor air quality, quality materials, and design for the 21st century family.



Monthly savings on utility expenses and long-term savings for the life of the home.



Tough against future storms and power outages while reducing maintenance headaches.



Consistently and dependably delivers optimal energy efficiency and comfort.

In Development

Energy-independent communities are long overdue, the technology is simple, building methods are established, and the demand from the market is strong and underserved.  As we build our future, you could be part of history. Contact us to learn how.
