Lower Utility Costs Here in Wisconsin Rapids, and just about 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 dollars on your electric bills. 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 house. Depending on the size and power of your system, you could generate enough energy to power a number of your appliances or even your whole home. If you examine a typical home’s yearly utility costs, roughly half of the total amount of energy consumed is spent on 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 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, too. These might 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 Wisconsin Rapids. You won’t have to worry if your system only partially covers your family’s energy usage. 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.
