SunSource Creates Solar Energy Systems for Everyone
Solar energy for homes has come of age. Just survey the roofs in your neighborhood the next time you’re out for a walk. Every year, more people realize that the one-time luxury of personal solar energy has evolved into an affordable decision, leading homeowners to cease paying hundreds if not thousands of dollars every year to utility companies.
The truth is that we’ve all been looking at those same electric bills from the same companies for so long that writing those monthly checks has become as automatic as picking up milk from the store. However, the days of this energy monopoly are over. Kansas City-based SunSource can show homeowners a custom designed, affordable solar panel system for any home.
A solar panel system addresses several important facets of modern energy use. Owners become more familiar with intelligent energy consumption, natural resources are conserved, and the system can create a surplus of energy to be stored for later use specifically, during power outages due to storms or natural disasters. Unlike giant generators and power plants, you’re investing in private energy production with solar panels, not in the size of the public system you’re supporting.
Early models of panels were created to fit only certain types of roofs. Today, renewable solar energy panels are designed to fit every type of roof. Scrolling through the company’s website reveals diverse case studies, ranging from low sun-exposure roof orientations to 100% energy independence. To best serve its clients, SunSource has all of its systems installed by their own employees, not subcontractors.
In terms of return on investment (ROI), most customers earn 11–20% from the first year. The entire system pays for itself in just five to nine years, depending on the selected system. A 30% federal tax credit also contributes to the savings.
SunSource has recently partnered with Renovate America’s HERO program, an innovative way to finance solar system installation by using equity in your home as the primary means for qualification. HERO offers 100% of the costs with no money down, flexible terms and fixed rates, where interest on payments may also have tax benefits. What’s more, the contractor will not be paid until you sign off that the project was completed to your satisfaction.
There’s no reason to worry that a solar system might literally leave you in the cold. Every SunSource system comes with a 25-year full replacement warranty. These warranties are designed to guarantee satisfaction and confidence for new owners of solar-powered homes.
One reason the ROI is so strong is that SunSource specializes in the Enphase energy system, a microinverter system in which each panel operates independently. This system is far superior to string inverter systems, in which each panel is interdependent, like a string of holiday lights. When the microinverter encounters a problem, such as fall leaf clutter, a faulty panel, or even a passing cloud, there is no negative impact on the full system.
Like most new technologies, home solar energy production remains novel, and it can intimidate many homeowners. Fortunately, SunSource Homes manages every facet of the solar energy ecosystem. The company’s experienced employees manage permitting, design, engineering, code compliance, and zoning, all within the local corporate office. In addition, they conduct real-time data monitoring of their solar systems to address any issues that arise. This immediate response potentially saves owners thousands of dollars over the life of the system.
Unfortunately, several other solar companies subcontract this work, and several of them even sub out the installation itself. A poorly installed system can limit electricity production and energy efficiency.
The increase in the value of your home adds even more comfort in uncertain times. Data suggests that solar homes sell not only for more money, but also faster than comparable homes. According to statistics, homes also recover 100% of the cost of solar system installation.
Solar energy has evolved, from a replacement for the electric company to an actual energy storage facility. At the most basic level, consumers often opt for energy storage and backup power within their systems. This excess energy operates as a generator of sorts, to provide maximum power on low-producing days or during outages. SunSource supplies and installs several levels of energy storage, from basic backup power to full energy independence, in modular graduated storage units.
Prior to having our solar system set up, we were spending about $200-$300 per month and now we spend about $150 per year. We didn’t think that this was something the average personal could do but it was not complicated.
Many potential consumers once thought of solar energy systems as being too new and untrustworthy to justify an investment. Today, however, opinions about solar energy have changed. In the face of ever-rising, erratic traditional energy costs, installing a solar system with a battery steadies budgets. Consumers will no longer have to worry about how an unexpected storm or energy shortage will impact their lives.
Solar energy has become a mainstay for more than a million contemporary homeowners across America. Each year, thousands of consumers take pleasure in reducing their dependence on the electric grid, eliminating a bill that saddled them with thousands of dollars in annual payments. They also take comfort in knowing they are doing their part to reduce energy usage while taking full advantage of a clean, renewable resource: the sun.
SunSource has built its reputation installing the very best solar energy systems to suit each individual home, to the delight of homeowners across greater Kansas City. Check out their website to see how much you can save while doing your part to conserve our valuable resources.
