Looking for a home with solar panels? Here are your options

this home at 827 North 5th Street is one of the few homes in Philadelphia designed to be super energy efficient with roof-top solar panels to help reduce your energy costs.

Movoto recently published a piece stating that solar panels will not only save the planet, but also make us rich in the process. With this new knowledge, we figured it was time to check out what kind of real estate stock was on the market with the moneymakers already in place.

Option No. 1: Energy Efficient in Northern Liberties

This home on North 5th Street has lots of environmentalist cachet: in addition to the rooftop solar panels, the home boasts reclaimed oak stairs, triple paned windows, low-flow fixtures and a Geospring water heater. We also love the second-floor laundry and the balcony.

Listed by Juergs Lunkwitz at Realty Mark Cityscape for $644,000.

Option No. 2: Updated Victorian in West Philly

If the Penn Alexander catchment doesn’t sell you on this home, the fully-paid solar panels might. If you need more inducement still, look no further than the spa-like bathrooms. One features a multi-jet walk-in shower for a bathroom-of-the-future feel and another plays it old-school with antique claw-foot tub.

Listed by Holly Mack-Ward at Coldwell Banker for $629,000.
