What is a Pearl Solar Certification Partner?

What is a Pearl Certified Home?

A Pearl Certified Home is a high-performing home in the areas of comfort, energy efficiency and renewable energy. Homes with this nationally-recognized certification receive industry-approved documentation that helps ensure homeowners receive maximum value for their investments when it comes time to sell or refinance. Homeowners can achieve different Pearl status levels based on their home’s investments. 

How Does Pearl Solar Certification Help Illinois & Missouri Homeowners?

Our Pearl Solar Certification status allows us to provide investment-grade data on your solar array, inverter and battery installation, reporting that increases your Illinois or Missouri home appraisal value. StraightUp Solar provides information on your custom solar PV system to the Pearl Solar Equity Calculator. This calculator generates an estimated value range over the next 30 years that you can provide to the appraiser during the appraisal process. You can also add current and future energy efficiency upgrades to the Pearl Certification Report. Pearl Certification and their supplemental documents will help with marketing your home for sale or appraisals for refinancing. The Pearl Certification Report can also help you remove your Private Mortgage Insurance.
