We now offer bird proofing for solar panels on residential and commercial properties as bird pest often use them as a place to nest, harbour and foul. The use of solar photovoltaic panels (Solar PV) to convert sun rays into electricity is increasing rapidly as technology makes more efficient, slimline and economic options available. However, nesting birds are also taking advantage of this 'renewables' technology. Pigeons in particular have made the most of the shelter offered under solar panels to nest and roost.
Birds nesting in and around solar panels can easily damage the cabling/wiring and the photovoltaic panels themselves. Debris such as feathers, fouling and nesting material will reduce the effectiveness of the panels thus reducing output and bird faeces is particularly corrosive.
Pestproof have fully trained members of staff who can access the roof to clean and use anti-bird netting/mesh or spike methods on the solar panels to stop the birds from resting on them.
