SAN ANTONIO – It’s the holiday season, and Christmas is just weeks away!

If you’ve been thinking about going solar, here are four benefits you can gain as a homeowner.

1. Increases property value.

You can increase your asking price exponentially if your home is equipped with solar power systems.

According to TurboTax, “To encourage Americans to use solar power, the EPA and the Department of Energy offer tax credits for solar-powered systems.”

Check with your local energy supplier to see if there are different rates for per-watt rebates.

4. No down payments for three months.
