Solar panels attract birds quite easily due to their installation on your roof. The installation of solar panels on your roof offers the perfect space for birds to roost and nest under them. The warmth emitted from the solar panels will benefit the birds all year around. Not only birds but the insects and lice inhabiting the nest will benefit from these panels. 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 complete your energy requirements and sell back electricity to the grid when you have efficient 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 bird droppings cover 50% of the cells, there will be a 50% drop in electricity production. 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.
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. In fact, a mesh system is installed over the solar panels to protect them. All birds, insects and bird droppings are kept away through these meshing systems. Most of these mesh systems are virtually invisible from ground level. The mesh system is installed without drilling or screwing your roof. 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 will not affect the conditions of the warranty on the solar panel. This is the main reason that you need to consider bird proofing for solar panels today. Do not delay and lose your hard earned money in the long run. Increase the efficiency of your solar panels with this system.
