Do solar panels raise your property taxes?
No, installing solar panels will not increase property taxes. Your property taxes are typically increased when local governments fund projects such a road constructions, building new schools, etc.
Do solar panels work in a blackout?
Solar panels alone won't work during a power outage—but when paired with solar battery storage, they can. See how solar battery storage keeps your solar systems working during an outage with reliable, renewable solar power, and why we need clean energy now more than ever
While solar panels alone do not work during a power outage, when paid with a solar battery storage system would keep your solar panels working during an outage. Sunrun's Brightbox battery storage system will divert excess solar energy your panels create to your battery and backup panel, allowing you to power essential appliances and the most important rooms in your home.

Is the cost of solar panels worth it?
Along with lower utility bills and tax credits that will help offset the cost of going solar, you'll also see increased property values, making solar a solid investment. In fact, a 2015 study
showed that The Home buyers are willing to pay more for homes with solar ($4.00 per watt).
