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 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. If you need the solar panels to prevent loss of energy and waste of money in the long run, you need to bird proof these panels. Here are important reasons to bird proof the solar panels in your home.
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 panels must be kept in pristine condition at all times to maximize the performance of these 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 the solar panels is extremely important to improve their efficiency and productivity in the long run.
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. A mesh system is installed over the panels to protect them from birds. The mesh system will deter birds and all other insects from the panels. Most of these mesh systems are virtually invisible from ground level. The mesh system is installed without drilling or screwing your roof. A special kind of clip is used to secure the mesh system which will not damage the solar 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
