Use Solar Products to Help Lower Utility Costs. Here in Northwest Arkansas, 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 change energy from the sun into electricity that can be used in your house. 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, about half of the total amount of energy consumed is spent on 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 all those other things 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 Northwest Arkansas. 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. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
