Go Green: Brighten your home with all natural light

(KMOV) -- How great would it be to shut off the lights in your home and have the ability to use all natural light instead?

Solatubes are an environmentally friendly way to bring natural light into your home. Homeowners can switch off electric lights during the day, save money on energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint.

Solatubes can be installed almost anywhere, and installation is fast. No structural reframing, drywalling or painting is required.

They are also cost and energy efficient. Sam Buchanan of Great Rivers Daylighting says that there is no heat loss in the winter and no heat gain in the summer. This energy efficiency means that homeowners can expect a tax credit of 30 percent of the cost, up to $1500.
