Lower Utility Costs Here in Sylmar, 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 be added to as your energy needs also expand. 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 solar energy system, you could generate enough energy to power a number of your appliances or even your whole home. If you examine 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 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 taken from the sun and not the utility grid. That accounts for some major savings! Many residential solar systems could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These can include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and anything else 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 Sylmar. Don’t worry if your system doesn’t produce enough electricity for the entire house. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, enabling you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t converting energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
