New Build Solar Panel Installation

Across Canada and the United States, a growing number of home builders and real estate developers are incorporating solar power production into their projects. There are significant benefits for developers who integrate photovoltaics into their construction plans, including increased property valuations, faster sales and a competitive advantage in meeting the changing demands of home buyers.

Saskatchewan offers the absolute best sunlight conditions in Canada for producing solar energy, and with energy savings strongly correlated with increased home resale values, it makes sense for developers in the Saskatchewan marketplace to invest in new build solar panel installations, maximize value realization of each project and take full advantage of the rebates and tax incentives on offer for clean energy projects.

Advantages of Building a Solar Home

Why should real estate developers invest the time and money in developing renewable energy systems for newly built homes and commercial projects? The evidence is already clear that adding solar power systems to a newly constructed home has financial and practical benefits for developers.

  • Sell Homes Faster

    A case study conducted by the Midwest Research Institute determined that homes sell an average of 20% faster when equipped with solar power generation systems. As a developer, faster sales reduce your risk and help you get top-dollar while reducing time-to-profit.

  • Increase Sale Prices

    Researchers have carefully measured the effects of home power generation capabilities on resale price and it should come as no surprise that homes with solar panel installations see their valuation increase in proportion to the size and power of the system. One study done in California measured an increase in value of $5900 for each kilowatt of system power. Other studies have stated that each dollar of annual electricity savings translates to an additional $20 of home value.

  • Meet Consumer Demands

    Building homes with solar power generation offers a distinct competitive advantage for developers. You’ll be able to attract buyers who value energy security and independence and cater to consumers whose personal values include environmental sustainability and responsible energy sourcing.

Planning Your Building Project for Solar

Getting ready to build solar? One of the key advantages of incorporating solar power generation into your new build project is that you can design your building to optimize power generation and ensure that future owners get the most value out of their solar power installation. Here’s how to plan your Saskatchewan building project for solar integration:

  • 1

    Home Orientation - Homes and commercial rooftops should face South. South-facing rooftops are ideal for capturing the largest amount of direct sunlight in the Northern hemisphere.

  • 2

    Vents and Piping - Rooftop features such as vents, piping, turbines and other features should be grouped together and separated from the planned solar panel installation area. Minimizing obstructions on the roof will help to fit more solar panels in an aesthetically pleasing arrangement.

  • 3

    Landscaping – Consider landscaping and the locations of trees and other buildings when planning your new development. Anything obstructing your solar panels, even for part of the day, can reduce the capacity of your solar power generation.

As a developer, your best efforts in optimizing the yield of your solar systems translates directly into better energy production and a higher sale price for your newly built homes.

Go Solar and Satisfy Green Building Requirements

Real estate developers can implement renewable energy production, alongside other high-efficiency features, to meet green building requirements such as LEED or Net-Zero. Buildings that satisfy the requirements of these programs can be certified as such, creating added value for buyers who value home efficiency and low cost of ownership.
