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 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. Bird proofing solar panels is the perfect answer to prevent loss of energy and money in the long-term. 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. 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 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 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. Your roof will not be screwed or drilled for this purpose. 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.Share
