Solar panels attract birds quite easily due to its installation. 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. 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. 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 some important advantages of bird proofing your solar panels.
Solar panels are a great way to fulfill your energy needs. You can also earn money by selling back excess electricity to the grid. 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 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. In fact, a mesh system is installed over the solar panels to protect them. Birds and other insects are kept away from the solar panels due to the mesh system. The mesh system is not visible from ground level. The mesh system is installed without drilling or screwing your roof. 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 why it is important that you consider bird proofing your solar panels to improve their efficiency and productivity in the long run.Share
