Use Solar Products to Help Lower Utility Costs. Here in Carrollton, and almost 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 help you save on your electric bills. Plus, the system can be added to as your energy needs also expand. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules convert energy from the sun into electricity that you can use to power your home. Depending on the size and power of your equipment, you could generate enough energy to power a portion of your appliances or your own home. If you examine a typical home’s yearly utility costs, roughly half of the total amount of energy used goes to powering heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are simply generating enough to power your furnace and AC, your annual energy costs could still be cut in half because the energy used to power the HVAC systems was taken from the sun and not the utility grid. Say hello to serious savings! Many residential solar systems can actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, also. These could include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and everything 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 Carrollton. If your system doesn’t produce enough to cover the entire house, that’s okay. Your system will be connected to the utility systems so you can use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t producing energy. Discover more about how solar energy systems work.
