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. 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. Bird proofing solar panels is the perfect answer to prevent loss of energy and money in the long-term. Here are some important things to consider when purchasing bird proofing solar panels.
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 surface of the panel should be maintained in top condition to improve its performance. If bird droppings cover 50% of the cells, there will be a 50% drop in electricity production. 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 help prevent any unnecessary damages to the panels. In fact, a mesh system is installed over the solar panels to protect them. 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 variety of clips is used to secure the mesh which will not damage the panels. They will not invalidate the warranty on the solar panels. Hence, you have nothing to worry when installing them on your roof. 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.
