Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panels Increase Your Home’s Value
The National Renewable Energy Lab offers a useful guide when determining how much your home’s value will go up. According to its research, each additional $1 in energy bill savings (from your photovoltaic solar panels) adds $20 to your home’s total value.
This rule of thumb varies depending on a number of factors, including:
- The location of your home. Panels in active solar markets like NJ typically yield higher returns than solar panels in less developed markets.
- The size of your system. Property value increases are directly proportional to the number (and quality) of solar panels installed. Hughes uses only the best panels and equipment on the market so you’ll receive the maximum increase in your home value from the panels.
- The value of your home. Larger houses usually receive higher boosts in value.
The exact numbers vary from property to property and system to system, but recent research shows an average increase in resale value being $5,911 for each 1 kilowatt (kW) of solar installed. For example, a small 3.1-kilowatt (kW) system can add an average of $18,324 to the value of a medium-sized home. The property value advantages of solar energy only increase as you scale up. Installing 5kW of solar panels adds an average of $29,555 to the retail value of a medium-sized home. All this while using a low monthly solar payment means you’ll make money on your home value and profit each month from producing clean energy.
It’s important to note that these statistics only apply to today’s housing prices and utility rates. As electricity prices go up (as they most certainly will), the advantages of solar energy rise proportionally as well. Also solar payments are based on current interest rates.
In addition, installing solar panels not only helps you fetch a higher asking price, but it can also help your home sell 20% faster as properties without solar installations. For homeowners who want to reduce exposure, paperwork, and wait times, this can be a huge advantage – especially in today’s sluggish housing market.

Solar’s Perfect Partner
Your Home buyers will have the peace of mind knowing they will always have power. A permanent home generator from Hughes guarantees power in any situation. Even when the grid and solar panels go down your home generator will kick in and produce enough clean energy to power your entire home until the grid is back up. A home generator is also the perfect partner for a home battery system. The generator will come on periodically to power the home batteries, making sure they never get drained extends battery life and saves money.
Never be left without power again. The home generators we offer at Hughes are permanently installed equipment that resemble an outdoor air conditioning unit, ready to produce power whenever and why ever you need it. Depending on the size generator you install you could potentially power everything in your home as if you were still on the grid. These larger units run on natural gas or LP fuel and never need to be re-filled. They’re very quiet and come on automatically within seconds of detecting a power outage. You don’t have to do a thing, no switching the generator on and no re-fueling. You can also mount them elevated to ensure power during a flood.
Traditional power supply isn’t always the most stable or reliable in NJ, power outages can disrupt your life and could be disastrous if you have critical electric appliances and equipment in your home. Remember hurricane Sandy? No matter where you live, storms or other events that cause outages can and will happen again, and when they do you will lose power. Something as common as a car accident or a falling branch hitting the wrong wire could kill power for days. You can eliminate any time without electric by installing a permanent home generator on your property.
