Lower Utility Costs Here in Florissant, and nearly everywhere else across the country, we have a large supply of sunlight, and we don’t pay for it to appear. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you dollars on your utility bills. Plus, the system can be expanded as your energy needs grow. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules convert energy from the sun into electricity that can be used in your home. Depending on the size and power of your system, you could generate enough energy to power a number of your appliances or your own home. If you examine a typical home’s yearly utility costs, about half of the total amount of energy is used to power heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are simply generating enough to power your heater and AC, your annual energy costs could still be cut in half because the energy used to power the HVAC systems came from the sun and not the utility grid. That accounts for some major savings! Many residential solar systems could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, also. These can include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and anything else you’d plug into an electrical socket. That means you’d be paying considerably less, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Florissant. You won’t have to worry if your system only partially covers your family’s energy usage. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, allowing you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t generating energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
