Solar Increases Home Sale Prices by $17,000

19 Aug

New research by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory finds that installing a residential solar energy system increases a home’s value by an average of $17,000 or $5,500/kW.

Solar Adds to the Value of Your Home
The study analyzed 72,000 California homes sold between 2000 and mid-2009, almost 2,000 of which had solar energy systems. It found that homes with solar sold for an average of $17,000 more than comparable non-solar homes.

Homes with solar power attracted higher offers from buyers who wanted to save money on utility bills and reduce their impact on the environment. The increase home sale prices was comparable to the average cost of system installation, and solar homeowners also enjoyed the benefit of dramatically lower electric bills.

New Solar PV Leases for your Home

8 Jun
We did our homework, and looked into over dozen lease programs, until we found the ones that most benefit you, the homeowner. 

California Green Designs is very excited to announce that we have partnered up with two innovative lease programs, designed to accelerate the widespread adoption of Solar PV Systems.

Both leases allow the homeowners to protect themselves against future electricity rate hikes. The financial benefit of leasing a solar systems is its tremendous affordability, thus removing the major obstacle faced by homeowners in their decision to adopt solar.

Pay as little as $0 Down for a Solar Lease Program, & monthly payments less than your current electric bill

With these leases, the combined cost of the lease payment and new electric bill would be substantially less than what a homeonwer without solar pays currently.

We’ve partened up with BriteLease, the solar lease program created by Suntech – the world’s largest solar panel manufacturer andSunEdison – an owner and operator of solar energy power plants. They aim to make solar pv systems affordable and accessible to most homeowners.  A solar lease is the ideal way for homeowners to adopt solar pv technology, without an up-front capital investment.

The combination of your new electric bill and BriteLease monthly payment will be lower than your current electric bill.

The leases are a turn key solution that includes bumper to bumper warranty and system performance assurance. Simple monthly payments include everything: product, installation, warranty, monitoring. So let California Green Designs help you take advantage of these great lease programs.

If you’re paying more than $100 per month for electricity, call us!

Solar energy is a proven, reliable energy source that is saving money for many smart homeowners today. And as the cost of electricity increases, homeowners will be satisfied knowing that their electricity costs are locked in over the term of the lease, and the savings start immediately. There is no pay-off period during which homeowners recover their initial investment. Since solar is a major equipment purchase, leasing it makes sense. For this reason, leasing is the method used by most businesses for major equipment purchases. A solar lease maximizes cash flow for the homeowner by spreading payments over long term. During the lease, and at its end, the homeonwer has the option to purchase the system which is a great idea as investment in principal residence has been a longstanding good investment. If the homeowner decides to sell the home, the lease is transferrable to the new buyer.
