Study finds that solar often adds $15,000 to home value.
Solar systems not only increase the value of a home, they also increase the speed with which a home is sold. Evidence indicates that homes with PV spend less time on the market than those without. In 2008, California homes with energy-efficient features and PV sold faster than homes that consumed more energy. In Denver, homes with solar were also sold more quickly
