This year, even Santa Claus is going green! Instead of using reindeer to pull his sleigh, the man in red has upgraded his travel system to a sleek, photovoltaic solar powered sleigh. Don’t worry; because Santa Claus travels at night and the North Pole remains mostly in twilight during winter months, he spends the months before Christmas soaking up rays to power his sleigh.
Kris Kringle wants to encourage all consumers to promote solar power this holiday season. To do so, here are some great solar holiday gift ideas:
