Bringing Solar Cheer: Illuminate Your Home with Clean Energy
It’s fun to illuminate your home with holiday lights! Not only do you see the wonder and excitement in the children’s eyes, but adults also enjoy the coziness of hanging lights during this time of year.
Whether you are setting up a tree, lighting a menorah, or hanging strings of lights over the banister, have you considered the energy impact? Even though holiday lights are enjoyable, you can expect a higher utility bill during this season. Additionally, there are costs that can’t be quantified because of the way energy usage impacts the environment.
So, as you are enjoying the holiday cheer, consider how you can make a few changes to invest in clean energy in the future. What are your clean energy goals for 2024? The decisions you make in the coming weeks and months will impact your carbon footprint and your utility bills in the next year and beyond.
How Solar Panels Perform During the Winter Months
The amount of energy available from solar panels depends on the sunlight exposure that occurs each day. During the summer months, the days are longer and we have more sunshine – which means that your solar panels will be exposed to plenty of sunshine.
Even though the days are shorter and the weather is cloudier during the winter months, solar energy is still available during this time. The good thing about solar panels is that they can provide your home with clean energy throughout the year.
Preparing for Future Holidays
It’s no surprise that holiday expenses tend to be higher compared to other times of year. Homeowners often see a “seasonal spike” in their utility costs because electricity consumption is higher. Not only are family members home on break from school or work, but you might be spending more time in the kitchen cooking traditional meals or hosting friends and family.
This surge in utility costs can’t be avoided this year since the holiday season is already underway. But you can prepare now to reduce the expenses in the future. When you look at your utility bills for the month of December, use it as motivation to invest in a residential solar power system to offset your electricity bills next year.
