Buying or Selling a Home with PV Solar

HansenLawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a well respected and independent research institution, just published its findings from an 8 year study on home sales. Guess what they found out when they compared homes with photovoltaic panels installed and homes without? The homes with photovoltaic solar installations were able to garner a premium, averaging $17,000 more than a home without a solar power installation.

The study took into account the watts each home was able to output and noticed a roughly four to six and a half dollar per watt value. The average value added to each home sale was about five and a half dollars per watt. They showed fundamental proof that having a residential solar power installation system absolutely increased sale price, as well as demand. Homes without a solar system took longer to sell.
