The Velux Energy Performance Model skylight features automated energy performance, allowing homeowners to maximize energy efficiency. The product is a combination of an Energy Star-certified Velux fixed skylight with a factory-installed, double-pleated, solar-powered, blackout blind and a preprogrammed Intelligent Touch Remote Control. The blinds are fully automated when a room is not in use, closing during warm summer days and cold winter nights to block light and insulate, and when closed, the blind boosts overall energy performance of the skylight by 40 percent. Homeowners can take advantage of a 30 percent federal tax credit, receiving an average of $730 in federal tax credit eligibility.
