The Benefits of Solar-Ready Homes
Solar energy has become increasingly popular in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area over the last decade. Solar is a great way to reduce your home’s environmental impact and offset your energy costs. You also receive considerable tax credits and rebates from the government through Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs) and local regulations. There are a number of exceptional benefits to designing and building a custom solar-ready home, including:
Lower installation costs down the road – If your home is already pre-wired and prepared for solar panel installation, it can decrease the costs of installation. A retrofit solar installation requires extensive wiring and roof preparations, which runs up your bill.
Simple, clean installation – Since your home and roof will already be equipped with all the necessary wiring for a solar installation, installation will be simpler and cleaner. It will not require additional construction for your home and will take less time overall to get up and running.
Greater resale value – When your home is primed for solar energy, it tends to have a higher value. Solar-ready homes in Northern Virginia are very popular, and they can bring in a greater resale value.
