I understand that owning a solar energy system will increase my home value, but will it also mean that I have to pay property tax?

Hi plong,

It depends on your state. A number of states exempt renewable energy systems from property taxes (Massachusetts is one of them).

You can check whether there's a property tax exemption for your state by searching the DSIRE website. We've set up a Google search for you here - if you click on that and then add your state to the search, you should come up with some results that are relevant to you!

Hope this helps.
