Why Pigeon-Proof Your Solar Panels?
Solar Panel Damage
It’s less expensive to protect your solar panel investment than to repair the damage birds can cause to your solar panel system and the sensitive wiring underneath.
Many health risks are linked to the areas filled with bird nests. Birds are known carriers of many viral and bacterial infections. Pigeons alone can carry up to 60 transmittable diseases. Pets can be especially vulnerable when bird droppings contaminate their food and water sources.
Bird droppings are very acidic, it’s high in uric acid, that is what makes the poop white. Over time this acidity can corrode the ARC (Anti-Reflective nano Coating) which increases the light absorption of solar cells increasing their performance.
Bird droppings are also highly corrosive to all building materials and if left alone can begin to erode roofing materials such as tiles, shingles, slates, and plastics including most building material surfaces such as concrete, and paint.
Finally, bird droppings can also cause roof leaks by blocking gutters causing drainage issues. Not only can bird poop directly damage building materials, however secondary waste such as seeds which have passed through the bird into their poop can be left in gutters and begin to grow, causing gutters to become blocked with self-seeding vegetation. Bird waste can also build up on the roof, under the solar panels, retain moisture, and block the gutters and re-route roof drainage causing leaks.
It gets very hot under your solar panels, especially during the dry summer months. Mitigate any risk of your solar overheating and catching fire by removing all pigeons and nesting debris that may cause hot spots under your solar panels.
System Output Reduction
If your solar system is connected with a conventional string inverter system, the panel with most droppings and debris on it will reduce the entire system output thus reducing your solar panel efficiency and production.
Being a bird hotel can cost you your sanity, as they are really noisy guests, especially during the Spring and Summer season when they are actively nesting. By pigeon proofing your solar panels, you can also reduce the amount of roosting and perching that occurs on your roof, throughout the rest of the year.Get A Free Quote
