The holiday season is here, and it’s all about giving. You give to others, why not give something to yourself? And what better way to treat yourself than with a gift that actually saves you big money?

A solar energy system is a proven way to greatly reduce and even eliminate your electricity bills. The average monthly cost of electricity per home in 2017 was approximately $112. Multiply that by 12 and you’re looking at a very substantial $1,344/year. That’s an extra $1,344 to save, spend or invest however you see fit. On average, a solar panel system saves homeowners upwards of $20,000 in only 20 years. Now, that’s a gift with enduring rewards!

Solar energy systems have become extremely efficient and have never been more cost-effective (and cheap). In fact, solar prices have dropped a whopping 99% in the past 40 years.

Adding to that bright news, this holiday season ignites GST’s most generous deal on solar this year. To end the 2018 holiday season on a high note, GST is excited to be offering $1,200 cash-back when you choose to go solar before December 27th.

Now, you may be wondering, “Is winter really an ideal time to go solar?” Well, it may surprise you to know that winter is every bit as perfect a time to install a solar energy system as any other time of the year.

As we discussed in a previous blog, every season is solar season. What winter lacks in sunlight, it makes up for in cooler temperatures, which means that solar panels work more efficiently, so even though there are fewer hours of sunlight, your solar energy system will still provide just as much electricity as it would on the longest days of summer.

There is never a wrong time to install a solar energy system, but there couldn’t be a better time than this holiday season to begin saving big money.

You deserve to get the most out of your hard-earned dollar. So treat yourself this holiday season to the gift that keeps on giving‒solar.
