Use Solar Products to Help Lower Utility Costs. When you’re using free energy from the sun to power your house, you’re sure to significantly lower utility costs. You just 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 tranforms it into electricity that’s used primarily to power your HVAC units, such as your air conditioner and furnace. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 48 percent of a typical U.S. home’s energy consumption comes from heating and cooling. Just consider this, even if your solar energy system only generates enough electricity for the AC and furnace, you can still potentially cut your utility 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 products 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, chargers – anything! Now if your solar energy system is producing electricity for these devices, also, 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 utilize power from the grid if necessary, and you’ll be credited for any additional power your system generates that feeds back into the utility’s grid.
