Clean, Renewable Solar Energy can be used in almost any residential or commercial application.
Save thousands of dollars per year for decades! SunSource has extensive experience in solar energy system design/installation on many projects throughout North America. Let your home or business be our next project!
Payback in 5 - 9 years
In most applications, our solar energy systems will generate enough savings to give our customer a payback period of 8*12 years. Larger systems will have a shorter payback period. The solar system produces energy which helps to offset or eliminate your electric bills.
Return on Investment
For those people that are motivated by the hard bottom-line numbers, let’s talk about ROI (Return On Investment). Based on your final cost of the solar system, after all incentives, most of our customers will see a return of 8% per year. That is better than most other forms of investments. And best of all, Solar is an investment that comes with a 25-year warranty! Try getting that from your financial planner.
There is currently a 30% Federal tax credit for all project costs associated with solar power projects! These tax credits can be used immediately or spread out over several years. This helps significantly boost the ROI of your solar project.
In addition, Illinois is now offering customers one Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) for each megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity your solar system produces, creating an income stream for the life of the solar system.
String Inverter System vs. Enphase Energy System
Think of solar panels like bulbs in a string of holiday lights. In conventional inverter systems, when one panel fails, the whole system goes out. Or when one panel’s output drops — thanks to fallen leaves, a passing cloud, or some other unavoidable factor — the system’s overall performance drops to match that lowest-performing panel. With microinverters, each panel operates independently — so no matter what happens to any one panel, the rest of your system keeps shining bright.
Integrated Project Management
At SunSource we have the ability to handle every aspect of your project in-house. Permitting, design, engineering, code-compliance, zoning, all issues can be handled from our office. Most of the competition use subcontractors for most of the items listed above, and even have a sub do the actual installation! We maintain control of all aspects of your project to ensure the quality of the job.
Energy Storage/Backup Power
Energy Storage and Backup Power are becoming a hot item lately! We can provide as much, or as little, energy storage as our clients need or want. We will work closely with you to determine what type of system is needed to accomplish your goals. The next time a storm knocks the power out you’ll be humming right along like nothing happened!
All of our solar systems are designed with the ability to individually monitor each and every panel in the solar array via the internet. This allows us to stay on top of any issues that may come up over the years for all of our past customers. Real-time data monitoring can save thousands of dollars over the life of a solar system.

Long-Term Financial Security
Almost everyone is concerned with their long-term financial security. A solar system can help eliminate the constantly rising utility bills. Many people experience their electric rates going up as an almost annual occurrence. This can add up to a significant amount of money 10-15 years down the road.
In our never-ending effort to provide the highest quality projects for our clients, we have made sure that the solar panels and the micro-inverters of our solar systems carry a minimum 25-year replacement warranty. Yep, you heard that right, 25-years!! Our company is so confident in our products that we back it up with a 25-year labor warranty as well.
