Lower Utility Costs Here in Menomonie and western Wisconsin, 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 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 convert 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 potentially your whole home. If you look at a typical home’s yearly utility costs, about half of the total amount of energy used goes to powering heating and cooling systems. Even if your solar panels are just 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 generated by the sun and not the utility grid. Say hello to serious savings! Many residential solar systems could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, also. These can 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 considerably less, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Menomonie and western Wisconsin. 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, enabling you to use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t producing energy. Discover more about how solar energy systems work.
