Why install solar?

Adding Solar PV to homes may result in higher home-sales prices, depending on PV system size and the housing market. In some cases, adding PV has increased the builder profit by $1,000 to $2,000 per house.

PV homes sell up to 20% faster than their conventional counterparts.

Customers increasingly recognize that solar offers monthly energy savings, is good for the environment, and is a wise investment decision.

Customers see savings in Solar. In fact, energy efficiency and low operating costs are two of the top five influencers in a new-home purchase decision.

Designing for Solar

Preparation and planning will mitigate many potential issues in the building process, including solar installation.

Good design and careful planning can optimize both the Solar system itself and the value added to the home. To reduce or eliminate problems during construction, consider the following:

  • Position the Home with Solar Gain in Mind: A south facing roof is usually ideal for creating the most direct sun access for the PV panels.
  • Minimize Obstructions for Solar Panels: Keep vents, pipes, etc., close together and away from the planned PV modules to maximize PV capacity and improved aesthetics.
  • Preserve Direct Access to the Sun: Consider current and future landscaping (for potential shade) and roof protrusions to maximize energy production.
  • Incorporate Solar into the Home Design: By designing from the beginning, homes that are more solar friendly (with more south-facing roof area, roof elevation, or roof covering), builders can maximize the value of a PV system while ensuring that the construction goes smoothly.

Maximize Your Curb Appeal

Across the country more homebuilders are realizing that solar represents a good investment for their portfolios. In fact, a growing number of homebuilders are integrating PV into new homes to attract customers and increase their bottom line.

Solar PV is an attractive opportunity, but many homebuilders are unsure how to navigate the installation process and effectively market PV systems. As consumers increasingly choose Solar to meet their energy needs, builders need to solve these challenges to remain competitive.

Competitive builders need to keep on top of the latest technology and integrate into their design. They must work with contractors and other vendors to ensure that they have trained and experienced staff who can properly design and build, to optimize solar. It is equally important to partner with solar energy consultants who are fully informed about solar products and performance.

Sunworks wants to work with you to bring new, energy efficient solar homes to the market.

Financing Options

Both FHA and Fannie Mae offer takeout financing to allow for the inclusion of owned PV in the home value. Construction material loans are based on appraised loan to value (LTV) calculation. With this option, builders are required to give the construction lender an itemized list of equipment associated with the PV system or solar-ready option.

Option 2: PV built and financed separately through primary mortgage or 2nd mortgage

Pros – With this arrangement, homeowners are able to choose the size, type, and cost of the solar system. Generally the cost of capital is lower through a mortgage which creates a lower lifetime system cost for the homeowner. If solar is tied to the primary mortgage, there is no separate line item for paying off the PV system.
