Yes, I know installing solar panels could boost new home prices, already one of the market’s priciest segments.For starters, I don’t see a great deal of standing inventory of unsold new homes, perhaps that market segment — many of them the well-heeled, for sure — can afford this energy-saving addition.Plus, solar panels on new homes help answer a nagging question about development: Who pays for the infrastructure required for a growing society?In theory, mandatory solar roofs may mean communities may skip debating which side of town gets to host an ugly new power source to light their growing city.
Thus: My idea means lenders would indirectly “value” solar’s benefit. The state’s many housing affordability challenges — and that includes the impact of future development on a community — will require novel solutions outside of build-build-build.
