Lower Utility Costs Here in York, and nearly everywhere else across the country, we have a large supply of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay money to get it. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you dollars on your electric 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 equipment, you could generate enough energy to power a number 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 used goes to powering 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 generated by 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, 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 very little, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in York. 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 converting energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
