Solar panels attract birds quite easily due to its installation. The installation of solar panels on your roof offers the perfect space for birds to roost and nest under them. The warmth emitted all year around is another benefit to the birds. This creates an ideal habitat for the birds as well as the lice and mites that live in the bird’s nest. You will waste energy and money in the long run due to the lost efficiency. Bird proofing solar panels is the perfect answer to prevent loss of energy and money in the long-term. Here are some important advantages of bird proofing your solar panels.
You can fulfill your energy requirements as well as sell back electricity to the grid thanks to solar panels. The efficiency of these panels is reduced to a considerable extent due to birds and their droppings. Birds usually nest within the gaps between these panels and the roof. Bird droppings will cut back the ability of the solar panels to collect sunlight which is essential to generate electricity. The panels should be in pristine condition at all times to maximize the performance of the solar panels. If the cells are half covered with bird droppings, they may lose at least 50% of their ability to generate electricity. If the whole cell gets covered with droppings, it may not be able to produce any electricity at all. Bird proofing these panels is extremely important due to this reason. It improves the productivity and efficiency of the panels.
Many solar panel manufacturers in the United Kingdom use effective techniques to bird proof their panels to improve the efficiency and productivity. It will also prevent unnecessary damages to these panels. A mesh system is installed over the panels to protect them from birds. The mesh system will deter birds and all other insects from the panels. The mesh systems are usually invisible from the ground level. Your roof will not be screwed or drilled for this purpose. A special variety of clips is used to secure the mesh which will not damage the panels. The mesh system will not interfere with the warranty of the solar panels. In fact, the warranty of the panels will not be affected in any way by the mesh system installed. This is why it is important that you consider bird proofing your solar panels to improve their efficiency and productivity in the long run. Share
