Improve property value with solar

If you own a house, it’s likely your most valuable asset, and ensuring its value increases is an important element of your financial future. Recognise your vacant roof space as a potential asset and adding solar panels can help you sell your home faster. Additionally, Australians believe homes with solar are more valuable than homes without.

How many Aussies prefer buying a house with Solar?

According to a 2018 poll of 1,005 Australians aged 18 to 79, 77% of them believe a solar-powered home is more valuable than one powered by traditional energy sources. With 57% indicating they would spend up to $10,000 more for a home with solar and 60% saying they would pay at least that much more for a home with both solar and a battery wall pre-installed.

Is Solar a Bright Investment in Australia?

Australians think that solar panels add value to a property, and estimates suggest that a 5kW solar panel installation could add roughly $29,000 to the value of a house. Now, that’s a bright investment!

On the other hand, if you’re moving into a solar-powered home for the first time, here are some things you might need to know from our experts.
To simplify and demystify the process, we’ve compiled a list of guidelines for moving into a property with solar panels already installed so you can start saving right away.
