A Pearl certification is a global standard for high-performing solar homes. As a third-party endorsement, it is a standard for homes that guarantees the quality of your solar equipment. When you switch to solar power by installing panels on your roof, a third-party organization like Pearl does the required checks to ensure that you receive value for money. Not just that, the certification increases the market value of your home.
Pearl Certification is the standard for homes that go above and beyond to keep you comfortable, healthy and saving energy. A home like that is valuable to you – and to future homebuyers. With Pearl Certification, you get the guidance and tools you need to increase your home’s value and maximize its price when it’s time to refinance or sell.
Pearl is the only market-based firm approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to administer the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program for existing homes. Pearl has also been accepted into the National Association of REALTORS’® prestigious REACH Technology Accelerator.
Homebuyers often look for a home beyond aesthetics. Savings on utility bills are an important consideration when making a home-buying decision. A recent report by Zillow stated that almost half of the homebuyers are seeking energy-efficient features while house hunting. A Pearl-certified energy-efficient home increases the sales price premium of your house by 5%, making the home more valuable.
A third-party quality check, like Pearl, assures an unbiased, independent, and honest assessment of a solar installation. A detailed report acts as a proof of credibility and authenticity of your equipment. A Pearl-certified home indicates that your house has improved air circulation and that there’s more to your home than a shell of walls and wires. Hence, when looking for a solar partner, it is prudent to take some time to do your due diligence and check for a Pearl-certified partner.
