Use Solar Products to Help Lower Utility Costs. Here in Zelienople, and almost everywhere else across the country, we have an abundance of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay money to get it. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you so much money on your utility 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 number of your appliances or even your whole home. If you consider a typical home’s yearly utility costs, nearly half of the total amount of energy consumed is spent on heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are simply 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 came from the sun and not the utility grid. That accounts for some major savings! Many residential solar systems may actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These might include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and anything 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 Zelienople. 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 generating energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
