Enhanced value with solar panels

We fitted solar panels at the end of 2011 and they are generating around £2,000 pa tax-free not counting electricity saved with a further 20 years or so index-linked. Transferrable warranty on both panels and invertor for another 15 years. This income passes to the new owner and must significantly enhance the sales value. My question is whether or not the property details allow solar panels information to be added and is the estimated value increased such as to reflect the highFIT tariff reflected by a 2011 installation?

  • Not everybody thinks solar panels enhance value. They may worry about the weakened roof structure, they may question just how effective the warranties are, the certainty that the value of payments will be maintained etc. Some think adding more to everyone's electricity to pay a subsidy to those who can afford the installation ethically questionable. Not to mention are they really 'green'. Personally I think they look horrible and would not even consider a house with solar panels.
