Submission + - Nimby, Schmimby: Solar Panels Increase Home Value (venturebeat.com)

blair1q writes: Venture Beat reports that a study by Berkeley National Labs has found that homes sold in California earned a premium for solar panels. The benefit ranged from $3900 to $6400 per KW of capacity. An earlier study found that proximity to solar or wind power may also raise home values. These results contradict the arguments based on degrading home values used by putative NIMBY (Not In My Back-Yard) opponents to installing or living near such energy-generating equipment.
