Can Solar Add Value to My Idaho Home?

You may have heard us mention in our last blog post that adding solar to your home can not only help you save money on your monthly energy bills in Idaho but also add value to your home… So, how is that exactly? Well, in addition to creating great energy independence the day you turn it on, our Idaho solar solutions can help insulate you against changes to the power grid and local power policies! We do more than just measure your roof to see how many panels it can hold, we look at your whole home energy use and provide a working solution to help you save – net zero is our goal because we know it’s the way homes should be!

Here are some other ways that Renewable Energy NW home solar solutions can increase the value of your home:

  • Energy efficiency. Homes with solar panels are seen as more energy-efficient than homes without solar panels. This is because solar panels can generate electricity, which can help to reduce a home’s reliance on the grid. Homebuyers are increasingly looking for energy-efficient homes, so having solar panels can make your home more attractive to buyers.
  • Demand. The demand for homes with solar panels is increasing. This is because more and more people are becoming aware of the benefits of solar energy. As the demand for solar homes increases, so will the value of your home.
  • Tax benefits. There are a number of federal, state, and local tax benefits available to homeowners who install solar panels. These tax benefits can help to offset the upfront cost of solar panels, making them even more affordable. As a result, homes with solar panels are often worth more than homes without solar panels.
  • Appreciation. Solar panels can appreciate in value over time. This is because solar panels are a long-term investment that can save homeowners money on their energy bills. As the cost of electricity continues to rise, the value of solar panels will only increase.

According to a study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), homes with solar panels sell for an average of $15,000 more than homes without solar panels. This means that solar panels can add significant value to your home.

Of course, the amount of value that solar panels add to your home will vary depending on a number of factors, such as the size of your solar pv system, the location of your home, and the demand for solar homes in your area. However, even if solar panels only add a small amount of value to your home, they can still be a wise investment, not only for the future but for the money they can help you save every day until it comes time to sell!
