Birds love the space between solar panels due to the warmth provided by them. The installation of solar panels on your roof offers the perfect space for birds to roost and nest under them. The solar panels usually emit warmth around the year which is another benefit for birds. They create an ideal habitat for birds as well as other insects such as mites and lice. 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 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 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 with droppings, it can reduce the energy conversion rate to zero Bird proofing these panels will help improve its efficiency and productivity in the long run.
Reputed solar entities in the United Kingdom use highly effective methods to improve the productivity of these panels. It will also prevent unnecessary damages to these panels. A mesh system is used over the solar panels to protect them from birds and bird droppings. 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.
