Lower Utility Costs

Here in Newton, and almost 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 help you save on your utility bills. 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 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 potentially your whole home. If you look at 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 simply 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 came 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 considerably less, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Newton. 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 producing energy.
