What if I install solar panels and then move in a few years?

0 votes
I live in Merced, and have been thinking about installing solar panels on my house. We have two children who will be going to college soon, so we might be downsizing our house in the next 10 years.

I'm worried that if we install solar panels and then move, I won't get a return on my investment. Any input on this issue would be appreciated.

Hey Lyle,

You shouldn't be too worried about not making back your investment. When you install solar panels, you'll raise your property level by roughly the same amount as you paid. That means if you decide to sell your home, you shouldn't lose any money on the solar system.
