Do you have birds nesting under or close to your solar panel installation?

Pigeons nesting under solar panels are a significant problem on a national scale. The necessary gap between your solar panels and the roof has created a perfect, safe, warm and sheltered nesting site for birds, and pigeons in particular, exactly where they want it – nice and high up. Pigeons need cover over their heads when nesting, and unlike most birds, they nest all year round in the UK. They simply love solar panels.

Over time the activity of the birds can see a significant build-up of corrosive pigeon fouling on the panels and under them and in the gutters and on patios below. Pigeon fouling is nasty stuff. It is a vector for some very nasty pathogens and bacteria which can cause very serious illness.

pigeon solar protection

This is a common issue that can be causing a number of issues for you. 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. We are here to help with solar bird protection and solar panel cleaning.

The solution is to stop pigeons getting under your solar panels permanently.

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.

Green Pulse Energy recommends a wire mesh system as a form of protection. The mesh is installed around the perimeter of the panels and prevents access beneath, giving protection for your roof, cables 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.
