Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for reaching out to us regarding your concerns about high winter utility bills. We understand how frustrating it can be to experience unexpected spikes in energy costs. Allow us to shed some light on some factors that may be contributing to your current situation.

First and foremost, it’s important to recognize that winter conditions pose unique challenges for solar energy systems. During this season, the sun’s angle is lower in the sky, and daylight hours are shorter compared to the summer months. As a result, solar panels receive less sunlight, leading to reduced energy production.

Furthermore, if your home relies on electric heating, it’s not uncommon to see significant spikes in energy usage during colder weather. Electric heating systems often consume more power, especially when emergency heat features are activated to combat extreme temperatures.

Additionally, winter weather conditions, such as snowfall or overcast skies, can further impact solar production by obstructing sunlight from reaching the panels effectively.

Moreover, holiday festivities and gatherings can also contribute to higher energy consumption. From decorative holiday lights to hosting gatherings with friends and family, these seasonal activities can lead to increased usage throughout the winter months.

In some cases, if your solar system was commissioned in the late fall or winter, it may not have had sufficient time to accumulate kWh credits to offset your monthly energy usage. It’s essential to view energy consumption and production over an annual period rather than focusing solely on individual months to accurately assess your solar system’s performance.

We understand the importance of managing energy costs effectively, and we’re committed to helping you optimize the performance of your solar energy system. We encourage you to reach out to our customer support team to schedule a comprehensive evaluation of your system and explore potential solutions to mitigate high winter utility bills.
