Birds love the space between solar panels due to the warmth provided by them. Solar panels are the perfect settings for birds to safely nest and roost under them. The warmth emitted all year around is another benefit to the 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. Bird proofing solar panels is the perfect answer to prevent loss of energy and money in the long-term. Here are some important advantages of bird proofing your solar panels.
You can complete your energy requirements and sell back electricity to the grid when you have efficient solar panels. Bird nesting and droppings reduce the efficiency of the solar panels quite drastically. 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.

The mesh system is installed without drilling or screwing your roof. The mesh is secured with a special type of clip which will not damage the panel. This is why you need not worry about the mesh system that is in place to protect the solar 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 why it is important that you consider bird proofing your solar panels to improve their efficiency and productivity in the long run.
