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 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. This will lose much of the efficiency of the panels. In fact, a lot of energy will be wasted in the process. 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 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. 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. Droppings cut backs the ability of the panels to collect light to generate electricity. The surface of the panel should be maintained in top condition to improve its performance. If the cells are half covered with bird droppings, they may lose at least 50% of their ability to generate electricity. If the whole cell gets covered with droppings, it may not be able to produce any electricity at all. Bird proofing these panels is extremely important due to this reason. It improves the productivity and efficiency of the panels.
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. A mesh system is installed over the panels to protect them from birds. All birds, insects and bird droppings are kept away through these meshing systems. The mesh systems are usually invisible from the ground level. The roof is not screwed or drilled to install the mesh system. A special kind of clip is used to secure the mesh system which will not damage 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 why it is important that you consider bird proofing your solar panels to improve their efficiency and productivity in the long run. Share
