Zero energy home will produce as much, or more, electricity than it consumes in a course of a year.
EcoVillage Mezzaluna Springs presents new Zero Energy Homes that are built extremely airtight, are highly insulated and utilize highly efficient appliances, heating and lighting, so their energy use is minimal. Once all aspects of the home are made as energy efficient as possible, these villas utilize solar technology to produce sufficient electricity to meet the minimal remaining energy need of the home.
Greenergy homes utilize a whole house engineering systems approach where all elements of the home function in concert resulting in a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rating of zero. No electric bills! Our homes are always also certified by an independent third party for a Zero HERS rating guaranteeing the property owner a high performance home as promised by Greenergy.
A healthy home approach begins with a proper design and engineering of the home. All the home elements must be carefully addressed in order to provide a functional and healthy home.
- No VOC paints and finishes
- Non-toxic flooring
- Climate and moisture control
- Water and air filtering
- UV lighting in HVAC systems
These features are just an example of the many different elements that will provide the EcoVillage Mezzaluna Springs home owners an extremely healthy living environment.
Living in Florida requires a strong building envelope.

Beautiful nature and year around sunshine.
Mezzaluna Springs is a contemporary community which takes its inspiration from the communities of Celebration, Florida; Seaside, Florida; and Savannah, Georgia to create neighborhoods with an abundance of green space, necessities of life within walking distance, homes that conserve energy and home owners who are neighborly.
In Mezzaluna Springs, your pedometer will show more use than your odometer! So much of what you want or need is just a short walk from your front door. In Mezzaluna Springs’ Town Center you’ll find everything from grocers to gourmet grilles; coffee houses to clothiers and spas to specialty stores.
From energy efficient homes to bike paths, Mezzaluna Springs is a community with an eye to the future and a desire to preserve all that nature has given us. Nearly 30 acres of natural wetlands have been protected and preserved not only for the enjoyment of those who call Mezzaluna “home” today, but also for those will reside here some day in the future.
People are the heart of a community, and in the heart of this community is an outdoor amphitheater and commons for neighbors to meet and relax; enjoy concerts, movies under the stars, farmers’ markets, neighborhood gatherings and other special events.
