Great news for people that choose solar: another study shows adding solar to a home significantly boosts its resale value. The San Francisco Chronicle:
In California at least, home buyers are willing to pay a premium for solar.
A new study from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory finds that houses with rooftop solar panels sell for higher prices than comparable non-solar homes.
In general, that premium more than covers the cost of the panels themselves, with homeowners making a small profit on their solar investment. Bigger solar arrays fetch higher premiums than smaller ones.
