Lower Utility Costs Here in Lake Charles, and almost everywhere else across the country, we have plenty of sunlight, and we don’t pay for it to appear. That’s why a SunSource® Home Energy System can save you so much money 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 you can use to power your home. Depending on the size and power of your equipment, you could generate enough energy to power a portion of your appliances or potentially your whole home. If you examine 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 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 was taken from 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, as well. 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 small amounts, if anything at all, in bills to your local utility company in Lake Charles. 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 so you can use electricity from the grid when your SunSource isn’t converting energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
