Birds love the space between solar panels due to the warmth provided by them. They create a perfect space for birds to roost and nest under the solar panels. The warmth emitted from the solar panels will benefit the birds all year around. This creates an ideal habitat for the birds as well as the lice and mites that live in the bird’s nest. Solar energy is wasted in the process and efficiency is lost. 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 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. 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. 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 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 help prevent any unnecessary 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. The mesh system is not visible from ground level. Your roof will not be screwed or drilled for this purpose. 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 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 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.
