Solar panels have become a favoured option for commercial and residential properties with the move to a net-zero society. The environmental advantages are enormous, and with electricity costs on the rise, switching to solar PV can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
Here at Maisum, we specialise in designing, supplying, installing and commissioning industry-leading solar panels throughout the UK. Everything is designed specifically for the clients’ or buildings individual requirements.
Generating your own electricity through solar panels can reduce your energy bills by up to 70%, according to ECO experts. Using less energy from the grid can save money and contribute to a cleaner environment. The savings can vary depending on factors such as panel size, electricity usage, panel placement, and efficiency levels.
Despite the initial investment cost, schemes from the government can help offset these expenses over time. Since January 1st 2020, the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) has been introduced. It offers export tariffs for small-scale renewable energy technologies such as solar panels, hydropower, and wind power. This initiative aims to encourage more properties to utilise renewable energy. By reducing your reliance on the grid, you not only save money over time but also receive financial incentives for any surplus energy that can be exported back to the grid.
Homes equipped with solar panels are often viewed as more appealing, as they provide energy efficiency and long-term savings. Given the rising costs of housing and general living expenses, enhancing property investment is a wise decision. Although there is ongoing debate regarding the increasing value of properties, experts suggest that showcasing energy bill comparisons before and after the installation of solar panels could significantly enhance the marketability of a property.
On average, the value of your property could rise anywhere from 4% to 14%.

Never-ending Source of Energy
An obvious advantage of using solar panels is that they rely on a never-ending source of energy: the sun. Solar panels continue to function even on cloudy days, making them a reliable energy source. Unlike finite fossil fuels, the sun will always be available, making it a sustainable option for the future.
Over the years, solar PV has gained popularity due to its environmental benefits. Unlike fossil fuels, which require burning to generate energy and thus create pollution, solar panels convert sunlight into electricity without producing greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, solar energy use also conserves water resources as no need for cooling generators or processing and refining fuel otherwise requires an immense amount of water.
By utilising solar energy, we can even help reduce the risk of oil spills and slow down climate change.

Once installed, solar panels should last for at least 25 years, and with proper care, they can last even longer. The average payback time for commercial panels is between 6-8 years, whereas for residential panels, it’s about 14 years. After this period, owners can enjoy the benefits of solar energy with very little maintenance costs. Apart from regular light cleaning, which involves removing dust and debris, the installation process is the most significant form of maintenance you will require.
Our latest project with FAUN Zoeller is expected to provide them with £4538 in annual savings, with a Return on Investment (ROI) in six years and estimated long-term savings of £136,456.
Solar panels are incredibly versatile and can be installed in various locations, ranging from residential to rural farmland, and even on the rooftops of factories or city buildings. One of the benefits of this technology is that it operates silently and without any noise pollution. Additionally, with panels primarily composed of silicon sheets, there is no risk of emitting any harmful toxins or fumes.
