How to keep your solar panels working efficiently
If you've taken the initiative to reduce energy costs and lessen your carbon footprint with solar panels, you will probably find that birds love to nest beneath them. And while it might not seem like a big deal initially, it will cause damage to your panels, and create other problems in the long term.
Problems caused by birds nesting under solar panels
Unsightly and unsanitary
Birds create messy nests that quickly become an eyesore, compromising the aesthetic appeal of your property. Even worse, the nests are breeding grounds for bacteria and germs, making them unsanitary, and health hazards.
Other pests are attracted
Bird nests can attract other pests like insects and rodents, creating a full-blown infestation that can quickly spiral out of control. This can cause damage to your property and health risks for you and your family.
Panels are damaged
Bird droppings can corrode the surface of solar panels, reducing their efficiency and potentially causing premature failure. Having to replace the entire solar panel system could lead to significant financial losses.
How do you stop birds nesting under your panels?
By installing Solarshield bird-proofing mesh. This highly effective system will prevent these issues and ensure that your investment in renewable energy is well-protected. Once installed correctly, you'll notice a big difference.
What you'll gain once Solarshield bird-proofing mesh is installed
Improved energy production
Bird-proofing your solar panels ensures that birds cannot nest underneath them. Keeping your panels clear of bird debris and damage allows your solar panel system to generate more energy, leading to lower energy bills and greater cost savings.
Reduced maintenance costs
Bird nests can obstruct and damage your solar panels, leading to costly cleaning or repairs. In the worst-case scenario, you might need to replace the entire solar panel system. With the Solarshield bird-proofing mesh, you can avoid these expenses and protect your investment.
Humane and environment friendly
Solarshield bird-proofing is a humane, eco-friendly solution that doesn't harm birds or the environment. Compared to netting or spikes that can harm birds and other wildlife, choosing this method protects your solar panels and demonstrates your commitment to responsible environmental stewardship.
