There are several companies that will encourage you to rent solar panels and then place a lien against your property until you have paid them in full. That is NOT how we do business. Homeowners that have rented panels have found it nearly impossible to sell their home; nobody wants to take on their debt! It's an absolute real estate agent's nightmare; they are unable to move the home at any price. So, when considering the installation of solar panels, purchasing is always the better route. The installation then becomes an asset, you are able to feature your home as being "green" and having lower electric bills to potential buyers, and you will sell faster with a 20% increase in your sales price than comparable homes without solar.
"Even as the real estate market was in a slump, solar homes held their value."
"Solar should be an industry standard for new builds." Quotes from:
