Q: Will solar change the value of my home?
A: Absolutely! Solar adds value to your home, but don’t take our word for it. The US Department of Energy sponsored an extensive study indicating that homes with solar increased in value by more than $15,000. While uniform real estate market adoptions are relativity slow, there is an increasing number of homes and communities that are switching to solar power. In a similar study by Zillow, they found solar homes sold for on average 4% more than homes without.
Having no energy bills reduces the cost of owning a home, which translates into a higher value for the home. Homes with solar also sell quicker than similar homes without solar.
