There are over 500,000 homes in America with solar power systems that are owned by a third party, the largest portion of which are leased to homeowners. To-date it has been unclear how the real estate market values these systems.
A new study finds that when such homes are sold, they don't attract a premium over homes without solar power, but nor do they sell for less.
The EMP Group will host a webinar on February 2nd at 11:00 am (Pacific Time) to highlight key findings of its new study, Putting the Potential Rate Impacts of Distributed Solar into Context.
The next EM&V Webinar, Consistency and Coordination of Energy Efficiency EM&V and Reporting, will be held on Tuesday, January 31, 2017.

The EMP Group is pleased to announce a new study, A Prospective Analysis of the Costs, Benefits, and Impacts of U.S. Renewable Portfolio Standards, conducted jointly by Berkeley Lab and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). This is the third in a series of reports exploring the potential costs, benefits, and other impacts of state renewable portfolio standards (RPS). Prior studies in the series have examined the historical effects of RPS programs. This new report, instead, evaluates RPS policies prospectively, under both a continuation of existing policies as well as possible expansions.
