Imagine coming home from a hard day at work, you park your vehicle under the solar carport, sheltered from the rain, and plug your vehicle into one of many free EV charging stations.  You walk a short distance to your building, stopping to pick up a package at the secure concierge package room. You enter the building through the keyless access system and ascend effortlessly to your apartment in an elevator.  As you approach your apartment, smart-home technology unlocks your door and sets lighting at your desired level. Your dog gleefully greets you at the door, your cat meows for her dinner. You adjust the heating or AC to your liking without ever seeing a utility bill. You set the temperature without guilt, knowing that all of the energy used is from 100% renewable sources.  You flip on your favorite video entertainment while you prepare dinner or stream the latest show over wireless high speed internet. As you prepare dinner, you pop in clothes into the in-unit full sized laundry. Relax on your private patio.  This is just a typical day at Solara.  We invite you to explore all that Solara offers and a detailed list of luxury amenities below.
