Of course you would. It would eliminate your electric bill (it might even make you money depending on where you live) and it’s worth $15,000, right? Surprisingly enough, for the most part, builders, real estate professionals and real estate appraisers here in the US don’t recognize and promote the value of solar PV systems on commercial and residential properties. Therefore, the value of that very tangible money making asset is not accounted for and transferred at the time a property is sold. That’s crazy, right? What’s most unfortunate about it is that, if that asset were accounted for properly, the return on investment decision to buy a solar PV system would be a matter of a few short years (vs. many times 15-20 yrs+) and, in some cases in some US markets (like California), to an almost instant payback scenario. Almost everyone that has a home or business would want one. In a sense, we’re all to blame because we don’t know this and therefore demand this value be accounted for as sellers and buyers of real estate with solar PV. Knowledge is power and now you know!
If someone wanted to give you a $15,000 solar system for your house, would you take it?
