Solar panels attract birds quite easily due to its installation. They create a perfect space for birds to roost and nest under the solar panels. The solar panels usually emit warmth around the year which is another benefit for 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. Bird droppings and bird nesting issues will drastically drop the performance of your solar panels. Bird droppings will cut back the ability of the solar panels to collect sunlight which is essential to generate electricity. The surface of the panel should be maintained in top condition to improve its performance. If you have 50% of bird droppings on the solar panels, it can result in a 50% reduction of energy. If the whole cell gets covered with droppings, it may not be able to produce any electricity at all. 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. This prevents unwanted damages to the panels. A mesh system is used over the solar panels to protect them from birds and bird droppings. 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. 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
