Lower Utility Costs Here in Columbus, and just about everywhere else across the country, we have an abundance of sunlight, and we don’t pay for it to appear. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you so much money 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 transform energy from the sun into electricity that you can use to power your home. Depending on the size and power of your solar energy system, you could generate enough energy to power a variety of your appliances or your own home. If you consider a typical home’s yearly utility costs, roughly half of the total amount of energy consumed is spent on heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are only generating enough to power your heater and air conditioner, your annual energy costs could still be cut in half because the energy used to power the HVAC systems came from the sun and not the utility grid. That alone is a significant saving! Many residential solar systems can actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These can include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and everything else you’d plug into an electrical socket. That means you’d be paying small amounts, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Columbus. Don’t worry if your system doesn’t produce enough electricity for the entire house. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, allowing you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t converting energy. Discover more about how solar energy systems work.
