Use Solar Products to Help Lower Utility Costs. Here in Columbia, and almost 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 help you save on your utility bills. Plus, the system can be expanded as your energy needs grow. 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, 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 alone is a significant saving! Many residential solar systems may actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, also. These might 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 Columbia. You won’t have to worry if your system only partially covers your family’s energy usage. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, allowing you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t producing energy. Discover more about how solar energy systems work.
