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. You will waste energy and money in the long run due to the lost efficiency. 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.
You can complete your energy requirements and sell back electricity to the grid when you have efficient solar panels. Bird droppings and bird nesting issues will drastically drop the performance of your solar panels. The solar panels are unable to collect light and produce electricity due to bird droppings. The panels should be in pristine condition at all times to maximize the performance of the solar panels. If you have 50% of bird droppings on the solar panels, it can result in a 50% reduction of energy. If the whole cell is covered by any chance, the energy conversion rate of that particular cell will become zero. Bird proofing these panels will help improve its efficiency and productivity in the long run.
Reputed solar entities in the United Kingdom use highly effective methods to improve the productivity of these panels. It will also help prevent any unnecessary damages to the 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. Most of these mesh systems are virtually invisible from ground level. Your roof will not be screwed or drilled for this purpose. A special kind of clip is used to secure the mesh system which will not damage the solar panels. They will not invalidate the warranty on the solar panels. Hence, you have nothing to worry when installing them on your roof. This is why it is important that you consider bird proofing your solar panels to improve their efficiency and productivity in the long run.
