Bring on the Cold: Why fall is a great time to go Solar.

You may be thinking, “Why would I want to go Solar during the gloomiest time of the year?”

One of the biggest misconceptions about the Fall – Winter months, is that the shorter days bring in less energy. But on the contrary, Solar Panels are made to continue working year-round and can even thrive in winter conditions, according to the EERE (Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy).

With Fall approaching, we may be coming up upon the best time to invest in a Solar System.

Here’s why:

1.       You can still get energy, even during harsh weather.

Solar Panels work, even in the harshest of climates. If you live in the San Luis Valley, you know that the weather can bring in sudden changes. Especially heavy snowfall. Although at first glance, it may seem like Solar Panels are just for summer. But these panels have been proven to produce energy throughout all four seasons.

Solar Panels can successfully generate energy in snowy areas. A dusting of snow on your panels can be easily blown off in the wind. Heavy snowfall is thought to present a problem when it’s weight places stress on the system’s structural support. However, our framework and panels are created to distribute the stress at mounting points.

Did you know? Snow can actually clean the panels on your system as it melts away. Talk about self-sufficient!

2.       Avoid summer installation rushes.

Summertime is the most popular season to invest in Solar. If you wait till then, you may find yourself in a very long queue of installments. Possibly, at even higher prices. Installing your panels during the quiet months will help you avoid the rush for them during the summer.

It may also be a lot quicker to get your system, because the demand for them is lower during the fall season. Since you will be purchasing during the slower months, take advantage of the lower prices and all solar incentive that may come.

Shorter waiting times means that you can start saving money faster. Accumulating more power to be used before the arrival of the coldest months!­­

3.       Maximize your savings by spending less money in the winter.

Start generating energy earlier. Like we said previously, the earlier you go solar, the better.

Lower your winter electricity bills before the cold even gets here. Wintertime is typically when electric bills skyrocket because all you want to do is try to keep warm. Your system will be ready to go by the time the cold rolls around, and you will draw zero to nothing from the grid.

Saving you a pretty penny!


Start Planning this Fall.

Summer will absolutely be the most popular time of the year to go solar. But the most beneficial will ALWAYS be fall.

If you want to maximize your savings and avoid the rush next summer, start planning to get your system installed today.

They’ll last you all winter.
