Solar panels attract birds quite easily due to their installation on your roof. They create a perfect space for birds to roost and nest under the solar panels. The warmth emitted all year around is another benefit to the birds. They create an ideal habitat for birds as well as other insects such as mites and lice. This will lose much of the efficiency of the panels. In fact, a lot of energy will be wasted in the process. 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 some important advantages of bird proofing your solar panels.
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. Droppings cut backs the ability of the panels to collect light to generate electricity. The panels must be kept in pristine condition at all times to maximize the performance of these 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 with droppings, it can reduce the energy conversion rate to zero Bird proofing these panels will help improve its efficiency and productivity in the long run.
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. Birds and other insects are kept away from the solar panels due to the mesh system. 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 will not affect the conditions of the warranty on the solar panel. 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
