Solar Panel Protection and Proofing

An unwanted home for pigeons?

Roof-mounted solar panels frequently provide a perfect sheltered roosting or nesting place for nuisance birds such as pigeons, jackdaws and even squirrels. Once in place, they can damage the exterior of your panels by spreading dirt and droppings. Pigeon guano is corrosive and can lead to a reduction in the efficiency of the panels.

Proofing methods

Our proofing procedure starts with a survey of the infestation and damage. The next step is to clear debris and the results of bird fouling.

The most effective method of preventing further damage to your solar panels from birds is to use mesh to exclude them from the gaps underneath.  We can fit this neatly and so that it does not interfere with the efficient running of your solar panels.
