Thorough evaluation on whether solar panels make sense in terms of return on investment (home resale value and cost savings). 
Does Adding Solar Power to My Increase The Value?
Lots of buyers and sellers are constantly asking real estate agents if adding solar power to a home will increase the market value.

The short answer is it depends on many factors. Take a look at this article I reproduced at Slideshare.

In the past I have mentioned Slideshare as a great tool to expand your reach in bring in more eye balls to your content.

You can take any blog post you have written and turn it into a Slideshare. Here is how you do it:

Got to printfriendly.com and put in the URL of your blog post. At the top of the page there is a button that says PDF. This will turn your blog article into a PDF. It will then be downloaded to your computer.

You can now visit slideshare.net and download the PDF.

Here are a couple of things worth noting - Google can read PDF's. On slideshare starting at the 4th page of your presentation the links are clickable.

Take a look at what you need to know about solar power when buying or selling a home to see what I mean.

if you enjoy this, please consider sharing it socially.
