Q: What are some of the advantages of solar power?
A: Solar power has a number of substantial advantages, from economical to environmental:
Readily available. Electricity generated from sunlight is free and limitless.
Energy savings. A SunSource® Home Energy System with only one solar module can save you money on your monthly utility bills.
Virtually no environmental impact. Solar is a fast-developing renewable energy source because as the energy is generated it produces no coincident air pollution or hazardous waste. By comparison, electricity generated by coal and gas-fired power plants produces carbon dioxide emissions that are believed to contribute to climate change and pollution. Can be expanded over time. The SunSource system gives you the flexibility to start small and add more roof modules at a later date for greater energy savings.
Q: How does the system work?
A: The SunSource® Home Energy System reduces the amount of electricity needed from your utility provider to put you in control of your utility bills. This energy-saving system harnesses solar energy and uses it first—before using electricity from the utility company—to power your air conditioner.
The solar power that’s collected can also operate other appliances and electronics when the cooling system is not in use. What’s more, if the SunSource system generates more solar power than is needed, that power will be sent back to the utility company, possibly entitling homeowners to a credit.
