With the holiday season on its way, this is a great time to think about saving a little money.

If you're a homeowner, there are several benefits of switching to solar energy.

A solar panel's efficiency can reduce your consumption by converting energy into electricity.

1. Increases your home value

According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, "Each additional $1 in energy bill savings (from your solar installation) adds $20 to your home's total value."

2. Federal tax credits 

If you invest in solar, there are 30% federal tax credits available. South Texas Solar Systems said projects need to be installed and/or on the roof before the year ends to claim the 30% federal tax credit. 

3. Utility savings 

With solar, you can eliminate 75%-100% of your electric bill. That means you'll have extra cash for holiday spending. 

4. Rebates available 

According to CPS Energy, since Dec. 3, 2018, CPS Energy has allocated an additional $15 million in funding for solar rebates. 

South Texas Solar Systems is available if you decide to invest in solar energy for your home.

The staff at South Texas Solar Systems proactively cleans the modules and services them to maintain an optional function for its customers.
