Going green is more than just a fad. Today’s eco-conscious home buyers are looking for a sustainable lifestyle, and if part of that is already built into the home, they may be willing to pay a premium for it.
There are many ways that a home can be sustainable or eco-friendly. From energy-efficient lighting and appliances, to low-usage water tanks, showerheads and sinks, all the way up to your roof—the perfect place to install a solar energy system that can help you reduce your carbon footprint and your energy bill.
Solar as an Investment
Home improvement projects are a great way to increase your home’s value. There are bigger projects, like kitchen renovations or adding a bathroom or living space, and then there are smaller projects like building a home garden or insulating the attic. Adding rooftop solar to your home lies somewhere in between, but the big difference with solar is that not only will it boost your home values for when you sell, it delivers returns today so you can save every month until you hand over the keys.
Rely Less on Eskom? That’s Real Value
We know all too well how the electric company in South Africa treats customers, and it’s not with deals and discounts and reliable energy. Homebuyers looking for stable, affordable energy away from the skyrocketing prices and load shedding issues that come with the traditional electric company are ready to pay for the privilege of solar.
Beyond Your Bill
Rooftop solar can help you reduce your energy costs every month, but beyond that, solar is good for the environment. It’s a renewable, clean source of energy that belongs to your home. The more people who go solar, the less dependence on the overstuffed electric grid and its smokey emissions-filled energy. There is a power crisis happening globally, and getting in with solar today are setting their home up for success for decades to come.
