Solar & Property Value

Share

It is a common misconception that ground mounted solar farms decrease nearby property values. 

  • Examining property value in states across the United States demonstrates that large-scale solar arrays often have no measurable impact on the value of adjacent properties, and in some cases may even have positive effects.
  • Proximity to solar farms does not deter the sales of agricultural or residential land.
  • Large solar projects have similar characteristics to a greenhouse or single-story residence. Usually no more than 10 feet high, solar farms are often enclosed by fencing and/or landscaping to minimize visual impacts.
