Benefits of Buying or Selling a Home With Solar
A home with a purchase-to-own solar system installed often has higher demand due to the fact that a homeowner coming in will move into a home that does not have an electric bill, only a small connection fee. On average, a home with a purchased solar system has been known to fetch up to 4.1% higher than a home without.
Reduce Electric Bill
As a homeowner, electricity costs are a large portion of your monthly expenses that will always be there. With a solar panel system on your roof, you will generate your own electricity! Even if you aren’t consuming 100% of the energy, you can bank energy credits for use at a later date.
Increase Property Value
When you have a solar panel system installed on your roof, you are not only saving money on your electric bill, you are increasing the value of your property! Homes with solar panels tend to sell more than homes without solar panels. This is due to the fact that the new homeowners will be moving into a home without any electricity expenses!
Secure Electric Rates
Each and every year we witness increasing electricity rates from the local utility companies. When you make the investment in a solar panel system, you can lock in the price of your electricity that you will pay each month, with the exception of the connection fee.
Reduce Carbon Footprint
You can lower your personal environmental footprint by installing a solar panel system. When you install a solar panel system on your roof, you avoid buying carbon-emitting electricity from the grid and instead draw power directly from your solar panels.

How does a solar panel system affect the value of my home?
When you choose to make the investment in a solar panel system, you are increasing the value of your home the moment they get installed! On average, a solar panel system has been seen to raise a home’s value by as much as 4.1%!
Do solar warranties transfer to a new homeowner?
Yes! In the instance of a sale of a home with SUNation solar panels, the warranties will transfer over to the new homeowner! SUNation will aid both parties in the process of transferring the warranties to the new homeowner.
What is a leased solar panel system?
Customers can save on the upfront expenses of solar equipment and installation by leasing solar panels. The customer will pay a fixed monthly fee for the electricity generated by the solar panels instead of purchasing the system entirely.
Does a leased solar panel system transfer to a new homeowner?
Please contact the company you lease your panels from for more information. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us!
What is a purchase-to-own solar panel system?
Unlike a leased solar system, a purchase-to-own solar system allows homeowners to pay for and own their solar system. Purchasing a solar system has never been more affordable thanks to SUNation’s flexible financing options. Purchase-to-own solar panel system owners save far more than those who lease solar panels.
How does the solar panel system work?
Solar panels take advantage of the most abundant energy source, THE SUN, and the way in which they function is actually a lot more simple than you may think:
- During hours of sunlight, the solar cells within solar panels absorb energy
- Within the solar cells, there are circuits that take the energy and turn it into direct current (DC) energy
- The DC energy is then passed through an inverter that converts it into alternating current (AC) energy that will feed to your home for your consumption
- You will either consume this energy, send it back to the grid or store it within a solar battery storage system
