Bird Proofing of Solar Panels

The nuisance of birds nesting under solar panels is becoming an increasingly common problem. Pigeons are particularly drawn to nesting under solar panels and because they are social animals, they often do so in numbers.

The birds are attracted by the warmth and shelter that the space between the roof railing and the panels provides. It’s also a great place for safety from predators and adverse weather conditions.

Bird droppings cause considerable toxic mess, but the problem for your solar panels isn’t how they look.

The droppings are acidic and can lead to corrosion of the aluminium frame and possibly the failure of cells within the panels. Nesting birds can also damage the photovoltaic (PV) system of the solar panels and dislodge the wiring. This is all damage that is costly to repair.

Prevention, in this situation, is the way to avoid needing a cure! Nu-Look Cleaners can bird proof your solar panels with mesh, preventing them from settling where they’re not wanted.
