Good news, solar investors! A recent study conducted by the University of California at Berkley has shown that solar panels increase the value of homes! Once thought of us a cumbersome eyesore, solar panels are now being appreciated for the value and energy savings they can add to a home. In fact, for every solar watt of power installed in a home the value can increase by as much as $5.50! That’s an average increase of $17,000 per house!
Many people still prefer to keep the aesthetic of their residence intact, and because of this wind turbines and solar panels are often met with resistance. Yet, the more solar panel technology increases, the more sleek and unobtrusive residential solar power can become!
As the trend towards alternative energy increases, more residents are starting to appreciate the look of solar panels. After all, solar power is a significant and viable alternative energy resource, and what better way to proudly show off your love for the environment than with solar panels? In other words, as more residents appreciate green technology, solar panels are becoming a badge of honor for those taking a proactive step towards environmental consciousness.
The Berkley study confirms that the disdain for the appearance of solar panels is no longer a factor when deciding to install green technologies in residences across America. We can look forward to seeing more solar panels installed in homes across the country!
