Lower Utility Costs Here in Keokuk, and almost everywhere else across the country, we have an abundance of sunlight, and we don’t pay for it to appear. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can help you save on your energy expenses. Plus, the system can be expanded as your energy needs grow. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules change energy from the sun into electricity that can be used in your home. Depending on the size and power of your equipment, 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, roughly 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 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. Say hello to serious savings! Many residential solar systems may actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, also. These can 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 Keokuk. If your system doesn’t produce enough to cover the entire house, that’s okay. Your system will be connected to the utility systems so you can use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t generating energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
