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 from the solar panels will benefit the birds all year around. 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 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. The solar panels are unable to collect light and produce electricity due to bird droppings. 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 is covered with droppings, it can reduce the energy conversion rate to zero Bird proofing the solar panels is extremely important to improve their efficiency and productivity in the long run.
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. A mesh system is used over the solar panels to protect them from birds and bird droppings. All birds, insects and bird droppings are kept away through these meshing systems. The mesh system is not visible from ground level. The mesh system is installed without drilling or screwing your roof. A special variety of clips is used to secure the mesh which will not damage the 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 why it is important that you consider bird proofing your solar panels to improve their efficiency and productivity in the long run.Share
