The financial benefits of a solar-powered future
The Value of Solar Property is a ground-breaking report that looks at the financial benefits of residential rooftop solar systems.
The research findings – which included statistical analysis of more than five million property transactions – are clear. The return on investment makes upgrading a home with a solar power system an easy and simple way to lower a property’s running costs and increase its value while also reducing its environmental impact.
The report describes and explains these in detail, based on case studies for homes around the UK. It also makes recommendations for how government and the property development, finance and construction industries can help ensure the deployment of solar and energy storage systems on new and existing homes. Doing so would ensure that homeowners, renters, and landlords make the most of the contribution that solar’s clean, affordable power can make to their properties. This is vital if the UK is to meet its legally binding target of achieving a net zero economy by 2050.
