The Benefits of Solar Panels

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells don't need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.
If you are thinking of individually installing solar PV, ensure you get several quotes and research the technology. If you need additional advice on the benefits and processes of installing solar panels, get in touch with our team today.


Due to recent Government restructuring of the feed-in tariff this measure is not as advantageous and is not economically viable in some instances. For these reasons we do not currently have a funding offer through Cosy Homes in Lancashire.

Cut your electricity bills.

Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation, your electricity costs will be reduced.

Get paid for the electricity you generate.

The UK government’s Feed-in Tariff scheme pays you for the electricity you generate, even if you use it.

Sell electricity back to the grid.

If your system is producing more electricity than you need, you can sell the surplus back to the grid through the Feed-in Tariff scheme.

Cut your carbon footprint.

Solar electricity is green renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. A typical home solar PV system could save over a tonne and a half of carbon dioxide per year – that's more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.
