Since 2008, hundreds of thousands of solar panels have popped up across the country as an increasing number of Americans choose to power their daily lives with the sun’s energy. You may be considering the option of adding a solar energy system to your home’s roof or finding another way to harness the sun’s energy. While there’s no one-size-fits-all solar solution, this has become the new norm across the valley due to the many benefits of having a solar production system on your home.
Buying a solar energy system will likely increase your home’s value. Recent studies found that solar panels are viewed as upgrades, just like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, and home buyers across the country have been willing to pay a premium of about $20,000 for a home with an average-sized solar array. Additionally, there is evidence homes with solar panels sell faster than those without. In 2016, homes in the U.S. with energy efficient features and PV were found to not only sell for more money, but sell faster than homes without Energy production systems.
