  • 15. Increasing Your Home’s Value
  • 16. Based on a study by the Appraisal Institute, each dollar you save annually on your bill provides 20 times that amount in equity– “……a solar electric system increases home value by $20,000 for each $1,000 in annual reduced costs. Often, a solar system can recover much more than 100% of its cost, and this percentage actually increases over time as energy rates rise.” (Copyright 2004, Andy Black of the American Solar Energy Society)Example: Old Electric Bill New Electric Bill Savings Per Month Annual Savings $300 - $100 = $200 x 12 = $2400 $2400 x 20 = $48,000 Increase in Value!
