Will solar panels add value to my home?

There is a lot of research on this topic, and the answer is yes, but we can not guarantee it.

*One study finds that most solar panels increase home value by $17k – or 4% more than their non-PV counterparts. Since the average system costs $10k -$18k, homeowners can expect to make back the investment of the equipment when they choose to sell their home.

Another research says property value increases are directly proportional to the number (and quality) of solar PV panels installed. … The value advantages of solar only increases as you scale. Installing around 5kW of solar adds an average of $30k to the retail value of a medium-sized home.
