Solar Panel Pigeon Protection
Do you have birds nesting under or close to your solar panel installation?
This is a common issue that can be problematic in a number of ways. Nesting birds can deposit their droppings and dirt/debris on the surface of the panels, reducing overall panel output and system yield. They can also interfere with system cabling, as well as cause blockages in guttering and the roof’s drainage system as materials from the nest, feathers and food debris can build up over time.
If you are experiencing this issue, you might want to consider installing a wire mesh system around the perimeter of the solar panels to prevent access to pigeons and other nesting birds, protecting the installation and ensuring that your system yield is unaffected.
Eco7 recommend a wire mesh system as a form of protection. The mesh is installed around the perimeter of the panel installation and prevents access beneath the panels, offering protection for your roof, cabling and solar panels. The system can either be fixed to the panels using retaining bolts (with no impact on product warranty) for very robust protection, or by using special clips that are entirely non-intrusive and which do not require the use of drilling equipment or glue. The mesh is also easily removed should future maintenance be required and has minimal aesthetic impact.
In addition, we will also install a ultrasonic device that will help disperse birds that, even with the mesh installed, might perch or gather in close proximity to the panel installation.
