Lower Utility Costs Here in Hudsonville, and just about everywhere else across the country, we have plenty of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay money to get it. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you dollars on your energy expenses. Plus, the system can grow with your energy needs. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules change 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 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 used goes to powering heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are just 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 was generated by the sun and not the utility grid. That accounts for some major savings! Many residential solar systems can actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These could include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and all those other things 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 Hudsonville. Don’t worry if your system doesn’t produce enough electricity for the entire house. 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.
