CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) -  Homeowners may save more than $1,000 per year on their electricity bills at Rockrose at The Foothills in Carlsbad, according to Brookfield Homes, builder of San Diego's most energy-efficient new homes.

"Our eco-savvy Rockrose new homes in Carlsbad are built to save energy, conserve water and reduce waste," explained Lora Heramb, vice president of sales and marketing for Brookfield Homes, adding the savings per year in electricity are based on a Rockrose Residence 2 bill analysis prepared by SDG&E, a Sempra Energy Utility.
