From the Executive Summary: To stimulate renewable energy development, governments at the local, state and federal level have provided a myriad of incentives for residential electricity customers who install solar panels on their roofs, some of which overlap. The combined effect of these incentives is quite substantial – particularly in light of the dramatic decline in the cost of solar panels that has recently occurred. This report aims to inform policymakers by quantifying the total incentives as a percentage of the installed cost of a ty

Abstract: Although residential solar photo-voltaic (PV) installations have proliferated, PV systems on some U.S. homes still receive no value during an appraisal because comparable home sales are lacking. To value residential PV, some previous studies have employed paired-sales appraisal methods to analyze large samples. Our first-of-its-kind study connects the two approaches. It uses appraisal methods to evaluate sale price premiums for owned PV systems on single-unit detached houses that were also evaluated in a large statistical study. Indep
