PV System and Property Value

Question

Is there a way to include the increased property value due to having a solar system installed in a residential analysis? I've seen articles with various formulas for this, like $20K for every $1000/year saved by net metering. I don't see how to enter this in SAM

Answer

SAM does not have an explicit input to represent the benefit of increased property value. However, as a workaround, you could account for it by setting up and running a simulation without the benefit to determine the annual savings, use that value to calculate the value of the benefit (by hand, outside of SAM), and then enter the value of the benefit as an incentive on the Payment Incentives page.

Best regards,
Paul.
