Do Solar Panels Actually Increase The Value Of Your Property?

By February 16, 2021February 22nd, 2021No Comments

Solar power is one of the most popular energy sources today. It’s clean, renewable and free. Even if a solar installation accompanies a hefty investment initially (especially if you purchase it outright), the savings you’ll see in the long run will be significant.  

Are you wondering whether solar panels will increase your property value? According to several studies, the value of a property will increase between 3% to 4% when solar panels are installed. However, some factors will influence the increase in your property value, such as: 

  • Where your property is located
  • The size of the installation
  • The age and type of solar panels installed
  • The savings expectations with the installed solar system

Your property value increase directly relates to the number of solar panels your roof can accommodate and also the quality of the panels installed. The electricity generation capacity of your PV panels should be proportional to the size of your property.  

Another factor that will influence the property value is the quality of the panels. This will affect their lifespan, technology and warranty. When you’re ready to make a long-term investment like solar panels, take time to do the necessary research to ensure you install high-quality solar panels. 

Why Is Solar Energy so Valuable? 

Clean, Renewable Energy

Solar energy is great for the environment. And we need all the help we can get to preserve this beautiful planet.  


Load shedding is a problem we South Africans have been facing for many years, and it’s not going anywhere, anytime soon. If you want a reliable energy solution, solar is the answer.  


Probably the biggest benefit of solar energy is that it’s free. When the initial investment is paid off, the energy you produce from there on out will be completely FREE!
