When you install a solar system on your building, you have increased its value. In most cases, using a Cap Rate of 8%, you will increase it as much as the system costs. This might not seem like much until you realize that almost 70% of the system cost is paid back with tax incentives and the rest is paid off with electricity savings in the next 3-4 years.
Your property tax bill does not increase when you install a solar system on your property. This is a special state law. Your local planning department does not get to tell you what to do when you install a solar system. Permits are ready to pick up in days, not months. Unless you install a solar support structure, the planning departments are limited in what they can say due to a special command from the State Attorney General’s office.
If you ever sell your building, certainly you can understand that a building without an electric bill is worth more than one that still has an electric bill. That value increases over time since the electricity the system is generating is getting more valuable every day.
