We live in an era marked by heightened concerns on global warming, increasing uncertainty on the future cost of oil, and continued dismay at the rising cost of electricity.
In conditions such as these, and in a somewhat troubled housing market, there is very little that immediately sets a house apart like solar energy, even in its simplest forms.
It can amount to not only a major, but a meaningful piece of equity in your home.
This does not mean that a prospective buyer must be someone Green, someone interested in saving the Earth. Sometimes it is interesting enough simply to save 40% or more on heating bills.
And if that reduces their carbon footprint on the environment by 2 ½ tons per year, most solar home owners simply feel just a little more comfortable, knowing that they are in fact, part of the solution.
