Lower Utility Costs with Solar Products from Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing. Here in Bakersfield, and nearly everywhere else across the country, we have an abundance 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 utility bills. Plus, the system can be expanded as your energy needs grow. 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 solar energy system, you could generate enough energy to power a variety of your appliances or your own home. If you look at a typical home’s yearly utility costs, nearly 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. That alone is a significant saving! Many residential solar systems could actually generate enough electricity to power other devices in your home, too. 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 Bakersfield. 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 generating energy. Learn more about how solar energy systems work.
