According to the analysis, Zillow “calculated the solar premium by comparing homes with and without solar-energy systems that were listed for sale and sold from March 1, 2018 to February 28, 2019, controlling for observable attributes of the homes, including bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, age of the home and location.”

This means, not only is going solar going to save you money every month on your power bill, and help the environment, but it will also add overall value to your home.
