Lower Utility Costs Here in Holdrege, and nearly everywhere else across the country, we have an abundance of sunlight, and we don’t have to pay anything to get it. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you so much money on your electric 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 transform energy from the sun into electricity that you can use to power your home. Depending on the size and power of your system, you could generate enough energy to power a variety of your appliances or your own home. If you examine 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 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. That alone is a significant saving! Many residential solar systems may actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. 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 Holdrege. If your system doesn’t produce enough to cover the entire house, that’s okay. Your system will be connected to the utility systems, enabling you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t generating energy. Find out more about how solar energy systems work.
