Lower Utility Costs Here in Kearney, and just about 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 help you save on your energy expenses. 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 change 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 portion 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 is used to power heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are just 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 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 Kearney. 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 producing energy. Discover more about how solar energy systems work.
