4 Reasons to Install Solar Panels This Winter

by Dec 10, 2019Residential Solar Panels, Solar Panel Tips, Solar Tax Incentives, Weather

Solar panels use the sun’s energy to generate electricity for your home or office, so it makes sense to install them during the sunny months of summer, right? Not necessarily. Summer days might have the most hours of sunlight, but there’s something to be said for installing a rooftop solar panel array when it’s not 100 degrees outside. If you’re thinking of going solar before the year ends, Kosmos Solar has every solar energy solution you need, from ground-mounted and rooftop solar panels to solar attic fans and electric vehicle charging stations. Call us today to learn more about your solar energy options in Dallas and San Antonio!

Here are four good reasons to get your solar panels installed in the winter so you and your loved ones can have a greener holiday.

They’re the Gift that Keeps on Giving

What do you give the person on your gift list who has everything? What would make a great family gift for you and yours? How can you set a great example through gift-giving? Solar panels! They lower energy bills, reduce carbon footprints, and add to the value of homes that have them. If you or someone you know could benefit from a residential solar panel array this holiday season, call one of our solar experts to discuss price and financing. This is one way to be sure nobody else will give the same gift you’re giving!

Snow Isn’t (Usually) an Issue

It’s a challenge to shovel snow and ice off a New England roof in the middle of winter to make way for a solar panel installation project, but this is Texas. We rarely get any snow in the winter, let alone enough to impede rooftop work. If it does snow here, it only sticks around for a day or two, so rescheduling the installation would be a piece of cake. Compare rooftop solar panel installations during a Dallas or San Antonio winter with a summer project in triple-digit heat; you can see why the colder months are preferable.

You’ll Get the Full 30% Solar Tax Incentive

If you schedule an installation in December, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full federal solar tax incentive that allows you to deduct 30% of your residential or commercial solar panel installation cost. This percentage drops to 26% in 2020 and goes away completely for homeowners by 2023. Call Kosmos Solar today to get the most out of this solar power incentive!
