Lower Utility Costs Here in Saint Marys, and almost 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 so much money 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 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 consider a typical home’s yearly utility costs, about half of the total amount of energy is used to power heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are simply 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 was taken from the sun and not the utility grid. That alone is a significant saving! Many residential solar systems could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, as well. 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 very little, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Saint Marys. 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 so you can use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t producing energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
