Do solar panels increase my home value in California?

Yes, solar panels can increase your home value in California by up to 2%-3%. According to Berkeley Lab, in partnership with appraisers, universities, and Sandia National Laboratories found that home buyers are willing to pay more for homes with Solar Panels. On average, home buyers are willing to pay about $4 per watt of Solar installed. The study included various states and PV markets, housing, and home types.

This means home buyers are willing to pay $15,000 more for a home that has solar installed on top of it. For example: at $4 per watt, if you have a home with a 5kW (5000 watts) solar system installed on it, that value is around $20,000 ($4 per watt x 5000 watts = $20,000). So, with the average cost of a solar 5kW system in Arizona being around $14,700; your solar panels literally pay for themselves home value!

Co-author Sandra Adomatis noted, “Our findings should provide greater confidence that PV adds a quantifiable premium to a wide variety of homes in California and beyond.”
