Use Solar Products to Help Lower Utility Costs. Here in Genoa, and just about everywhere else across the country, we have an abundance of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay anything 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 transform energy from the sun into electricity that can be used in your house. Depending on the size and power of your equipment, you could generate enough energy to power a variety of your appliances or potentially your whole 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 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 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, also. These might 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 Genoa. If your system doesn’t produce enough to cover the entire house, that’s okay. Your system will be connected to the utility systems so you can use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t converting energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
