Lower Utility Costs Here in Abilene, and nearly 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 help you save on your energy expenses. Plus, the system can grow with your energy needs. 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 home. Depending on the size and power of your system, 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, nearly 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 can actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, as well. These could 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 Abilene. 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 converting energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
