Onsite Solar and Building Valuation

Onsite Solar and Building Valuation

Rooftop solar is increasingly deployed as a renewable energy strategy, and practitioners in the field are just learning how it may positively affect asset value. Here we provide real-world examples from a variety of sectors, building types, and financing options to showcase the value of solar PV beyond utility bill savings. Discover solutions from building owners and managers on how they made the business case for PV and found increased asset value during appraisal or at time of sale.
