Birds love the space between solar panels due to the warmth provided by them. 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. Not only birds but the insects and lice inhabiting the nest will benefit from these panels. Solar energy is wasted in the process and efficiency is lost. This is the reason that solar panels need to be bird proof to prevent the loss of energy as well as wasting your money in the long run. Here are important reasons to bird proof the solar panels in your home.
Solar panels are a great way to fulfill your energy needs. You can also earn money by selling back excess electricity to the grid. Bird nesting and droppings reduce the efficiency of the solar panels quite drastically. 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 is covered by any chance, the energy conversion rate of that particular cell will become zero. Bird proofing these panels is extremely important due to this reason. It improves the productivity and efficiency of the panels.
There are many reputed solar panel manufacturing companies in the United Kingdom that use effective techniques to bird proof solar panels to improve their efficiency and productivity. It will also prevent unnecessary damages to these panels. In fact, a mesh system is installed over the solar panels to protect them. Birds and other insects are kept away from the solar panels due to the mesh system. The mesh system is not visible from ground level. Your roof will not be screwed or drilled for this purpose. The mesh is secured with a special type of clip which will not damage the panel. This is why you need not worry about the mesh system that is in place to protect the solar 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.
