Lower Utility Costs Here in Pocatello, 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 energy expenses. Plus, the system can grow with your energy needs. How does a solar energy system help lower utility costs? Solar modules change energy from the sun into electricity that can be used in your home. Depending on the size and power of your system, you could generate enough energy to power a variety of your appliances or even your whole home. If you examine a typical home’s yearly utility costs, nearly 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 was taken from the sun and not the utility grid. That accounts for some major savings! Many residential solar systems can actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. 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 Pocatello. 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 producing energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
