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. 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 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. The solar panels are unable to collect light and produce electricity due to bird droppings. 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 these panels is extremely important due to this reason. It improves the productivity and efficiency of the panels.
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 installed over the panels to protect them from birds. Birds and other insects are kept away from the solar panels due to the mesh system. 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 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.Share
