Solar and the value of your house

A US study led by a researcher from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and a home appraisal expert found that in some markets adding solar to your house generated a 100% return on investment when the house was sold. In other words, for every dollar spent on solar the seller was able to get that dollar back. Try that bathroom and kitchen renovations!

Furthermore, having a house that has low or zero electricity bills is likely to become more attractive to buyers in the future - especially as utility rates increase.
