Use Solar Products to Help Lower Utility Costs. Here in Mobile, 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 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 convert energy from the sun into electricity that you can use to power your home. Depending on the size and power of your solar energy system, you could generate enough energy to power a variety of your appliances or even your whole home. If you consider a typical home’s yearly utility costs, nearly half of the total amount of energy used goes to powering heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are only generating enough to power your furnace 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. Say hello to serious savings! Many residential solar systems may actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. These might 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 Mobile. Don’t worry if your system doesn’t produce enough electricity for the entire house. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, allowing you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t converting energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
