Pennsylvania net metering allows you to sell excess solar electricity back to the utility at the same price at which you would buy it.The Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) program enables Pennsylvanians to sell the SRECs that their panels generate. In Pennsylvania, you qualify for the federal solar tax credit.

Generally, homes with solar energy systems sell for more than homes without. In most parts of the country, going solar can increase your property’s value by 4.1 to 9.9%, depending on where you live. Please note: The value of your property will only increase if you own, rather than lease, your solar system. However, a leased solar system may increase your home’s marketability.
