The Christmas Gift that Keeps on Giving: Solar Panels
This holiday season, think outside the box and choose to give the gift of solar panels. There are many advantages of spreading the solar power cheer this December (or anytime).
IMPROVED HOME VALUE
Solar panels were a hot trend for houses in 2022. Adding solar panels can actually improve your home’s resale value. In 2022, homes with solar panels sold for 4% more on average than those without.
Another benefit of gifting solar panels this holiday season is that they require little maintenance. Once installed, you’ll only need to clean and maintain your solar panels once a year to keep them in top shape. Solar panels’ average life span before you need to replace them is around 25 years. So sit back, relax and enjoy your solar energy!
Solar panels might not be the least expensive gift on your seasonal shopping list, but they’ll definitely save you money long term. A solar panel system that powers your home can reduce your utility bills significantly. Even if your panels won’t replace all the energy for your home, you can still expect to see serious savings.
Additionally, you can expect solar energy tax benefits, or solar energy tax credits, after solar panel installation. The most common tax benefit is the federal investment tax credit (ITC), which gives you a credit worth 30% of your solar-powered system’s total purchase cost.
A LEARNING MOMENT
If you’re looking to set an example for your children or future generations, use solar panel installation to show your values. Investing in solar power demonstrates your priorities and offers valuable lessons about sustainability and eco-friendliness to generations to come.
When you decide to give the gift of solar power, you’re not only gifting yourself and your family, but you are also giving back to the environment. One of the main benefits of using solar panels is reducing your carbon footprint. This puts you in a position to be an active part of securing a green future for both your family and the planet as a whole.
DURABILITY AND LONG-LASTING
Unlike most gifts, that either stop working or go out of style, solar panels are made to last. You and your family can look forward to solar power use for 25 years or even longer. The power solar panels provide will constantly remind your loved ones of your excellent gift-giving skills.
