Solar panels as a long-term investment for your home is one of the smartest contributions you can make as a homeowner in this day and age, and it's environmentally friendly!
Real estate remains one of the few assets to build extensive equity. Every single small improvement made to the home ends up becoming a selling point in the future when it's listed.
Knowing this, it should come as no surprise that a study by TheLawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that real estate buyers are willing to pay, on average, a $15,000 premium for a home with a 3.6 kW solar energy system installed! This study was conducted from 2002 to 2013 when solar panels were still a rising trend. Now, after reaching over 1 million installations in the United States, they're being offered as prebuilt features in many states like California and Florida, according to Planet Experts.
This means that not only do these systems add value that's often not calculated when homeowners consider the cost of solar panels, but they also allow sellers to compete handily in the real estate market as well. With so many state and federal incentives lowering the price to go solar, the value that these systems add to a home is icing on the cake!
With an increasingly affordable buy-in price, a return on investment of roughly four years for the average system and the fact that solar can improve home value, the decision is a no-brainer. Go green and save green with Infiniti Energy Services!
