What happens to neighboring property values?

It is a common misconception that ground-mounted solar farms decrease nearby property values. Multiple studies have found that the value of properties near solar farms increased after the facilities were installed. Appraisal studies spanning multiple states have found that even properties adjoining solar farms match the value (within one percent) of similar properties that do not border solar farms.

Studies have also found that substantial benefits are flowing to communities where solar farms are located. A report by the University of North Carolina examined the economic impact of more than 100 solar projects in over 50 counties and found that solar facilities have increased the tax revenue from agricultural property by between 1,000% and 10,000%.
