“PV solar panels have had an unexpected benefit. They increase the value and sell-ability of your home.”
This situation only applies if you install the solar panels yourself. Companies which offer free PV solar panels, and rent your roof space, will have the opposite effect.
You do need to make sure that you own the PV solar panels because solar panels offered by a free solar panels company will quickly become a white elephant for anyone selling a property which has solar panels held by a third party.
A PV solar panel installation makes a house more desirable to any future home buyers if it is part of the property than one with free solar panels, which is not. Also, estate agents have seen averagely priced properties with solar installed selling for up to 5-10% more than properties without PV solar panels.
