As more homes and businesses are looking to become greener, more are turning to solar panels to generate greener, cleaner energy. Solar panels rely on energy from the sun to generate energy and that means that they have to work as efficiently as possible. While you might do as much as possible to ensure that your panels generate the energy you expect, you might find that another problem is preventing your system from working – birds.
The reality is that birds will often look for places to nest, hide and rest and they might decide that your property is the perfect place. This can mean that you soon find yourself with a problem whereby large numbers of birds are frequenting your property and becoming a nuisance.
All kinds of birds can become a problem including pigeons and seagulls and many will take up residence on your roof. If you have solar panels on your roof this is where birds will choose. This is where solar panel bird proofing can help to overcome the problem.

As we have mentioned, your solar panels have to be completely clear if they are to work effectively but nuisance birds can prevent this from happening.
Birds can cause a lot of mess and damage and that will mean that you are not getting as much from your solar panels as possible. A build-up of bird mess can mean that your solar panel can be covered in bird faeces, nesting materials, and feathers. This can all reduce the effectiveness of your solar panels.
Furthermore, solar panels are fragile and if a large number of birds stand and rest on them, then this can cause damage that could prove costly. As a result, it makes sense to take the necessary action by proofing methods in place and this is where we can help.
As experts in bird proofing properties, we understand what is required to ensure that your solar panels are protected. To do this, we carry out a full assessment of your property as this will allow us to see how the birds are behaving, how they use your property, and what types of birds are present.
Depending on the type of bird, we can remove all nests from around, near, and underneath your solar panels. This will remove any immediate concerns but then we will work to install the correct solutions.
As an experienced company, we understand what works and all of the work that we carry out will not have any impact on the performance of your solar panels. We use high-quality stainless steel solar panel bird mesh around your solar panels as well as other proofing methods, such as spikes or wire where necessary to help deter birds and keep them away from your property for good.
This is work that has to be carried out by experts as attempting to do this yourself could have an impact on the performance of your solar panels.

This will enable us to implement the right solutions as early as possible to prevent further issues or damage, all of which can mean that you face additional costs to put any damage right in the future.
Solar panel proofing will last for many years when installed correctly. If not installed correctly, birds can still gain access under the panels it will very quickly become damaged and need replacing.
There is no magic way to keep bird droppings off of solar panels although conducting cleaning of the panels regularly will ensure they are working as efficiently as possible.
