Lower Utility Costs When you’re using the sun’s energy to power your home, you’re going to experience lower utility costs. You only need a system to capture this energy. That’s where the SunSource® Home Energy System comes in. How can solar energy reduce utility costs? Each solar module takes in energy and converts it to electricity that’s used mainly to power your HVAC units, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of the energy used in a typical U.S. home comes from heating and cooling. Just imagine, even if your solar energy system only generates enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still likely cut your electric bill in half every year. However, the more modules you install, the more electricity you could produce. Energy that isn’t used for your heating and cooling systems will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your refrigerator and oven, or lights and any other items you plug into an outlet. We’re talking TVs, computers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is producing electricity for these devices, too, you’re significantly decreasing your dependence on the utility company. Actually, you could find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even better is that with net-metering, you can still utilize power from the grid if necessary, and you’ll be credited for any surplus power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid.
