A study by Origin Energy revealed that tenants may be willing to pay more rent for a property with solar. It was found that 55% of renters would be willing to increase their weekly rental costs by $10 for a property with solar.
In some cases, solar can save households over $1,500 a year on electricity bills; an extra $500 a year on rent is a no brainer for many.
It’s also worth noting that landlords can use solar power as a way to differentiate their property on the market. Solar power is widely becoming the new norm, and a solar PV system on a rental substantially increases the attractiveness of the property.
The survey also revealed 57% of people would pay at least $10,000 more for a house with solar panels than one without, meaning investors who plan to sell a property down the track may be able to recoup the installation costs.
By adding a “Smart” battery, you can earn income from your solar investment. Your tenant benefits from cheaper cleaner energy, turning your solar investment into an income producing asset.
