Increase Your Property Value With Solar

Multiple studies by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), a research laboratory funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, have shown that solar can improve the value of your home.

This study shows that the demand for solar is growing; energy-efficient home features like solar PV systems can have a big impact on your home and increase its market value, make your home smarter.
Top benefits of having a solar roof includes:
• Higher resale value
• Fewer days to sell the listed property

• Cut down on rising month-to-month electricity bills and maintenance.

The money saved could be used on other investments for a more desirable lifestyle.

Here’s an example for a 6.00 kW DC solar energy system in Cambridge, MA that produces about 6,300 kWh per year: The total installation cost for a system of this size, including panels, labor and all related costs, was about $19,800. After receiving a federal tax credit of $5,940 (30% of the total cost), a state tax credit of $1,000, $1,282 in electricity savings, and $1,209 in state incentives called SRECs, the effective cost in the first year was only about $10,369. The system will pay for itself in five years.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory released a report showing that homes with solar panels typically sell for $15,000 greater than those without solar panels installed.
Homeowners who sell, can promote their solar homes and thus gain a better sales advantage over others.
It’s time for you to make the valuable investment and go solar.
