Lower Utility Costs Here in Delray Beach, and almost 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 help you save on your utility 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 convert energy from the sun into electricity that you can use to power your home. Depending on the size and power of your solar energy system, you could generate enough energy to power a number of your appliances or your own home. If you consider 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 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 taken from the sun and not the utility grid. That alone is a significant saving! Many residential solar systems could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, also. These could include other appliances, lights, TVs and computers, and anything else 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 Delray Beach. 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 converting energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
