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 harvest this energy. That’s where the SunSource® Home Energy System comes in. How can solar energy reduce utility costs? Each solar module collects 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 typical U.S. home’s energy usage comes from heating and cooling. Just imagine, even if your solar energy system only converts enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still possibly cut your electric bill in half every year. However, the more modules you install, the more electricity you could generate. Energy that isn’t used for your heating and cooling systems will be used to power other appliances in your home, such as your washer and dryer, or lights and any other devices 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 substantially cutting back your dependence on the utility company. Actually, you could find yourself paying less and less to the utility company at all. What’s even sweeter is that with net-metering, you can still take power from the grid if you need to, and you’ll be credited for any surplus power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid.
