Make an investment in your home and a clean renewable energy future for your children by installing rooftop solar panels, now.
If you are a homeowner, there is no better time to join the rooftop solar revolution and begin generating your own power. Besides helping to build the country’s clean renewable energy infrastructure, you will be increasing your home’s value.
Below are five reasons to consider joining the ranks of homeowners who have purchased a rooftop solar power system.
Home Sales Price Premium for Owned Solar Panels
Owned solar power systems can increase the value of your home and give you an edge over non-solar home sellers in your area.
Home rooftop solar panels are a relatively new home selling feature that will likely gain in importance as electricity prices continue rising and people become more concerned about getting their power from clean renewable sources. Fortunately, the real estate industry is embracing rooftop solar, incorporating it as part of the selling and buying process.
A November 2015 Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory study shows that energy efficiency-minded homebuyers are willing to pay a premium for homes that have owned solar power systems, even up to the cost of the system (less any rebates and tax incentives).1
