According to a study from Berkeley, every 1 watt of energy a solar panel in a home generates equals a $5.50 increase in home value. A small 5-panel roof system would add over $6,000 to a typical home's value.
With the number of incentives solar power offers, more and more homeowners are making the switch, saving themselves money, and adding value to their homes in the process.
