Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Cambridge

Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels Cambridge

Historic Cambridgeshire was made up of the counties of Huntingdonshire, the Isle of Ely and the Soke of Peterborough. However, modern Cambridgeshire was formed in 1974 and currently includes the districts of the City of Cambridge, South Cambridge, Huntingdonshire, Fenland, East Cambridgeshire and the City of Peterborough.

Cambridgeshire has two rivers running through it. One is the River Great Ouse which passes through St Neots, Little Paxton, Offord D’Arcy, Offord Cluny, Brampton, Godmanchester, Huntingdon, Hartford, Wyton, Houghton, Hemingford Abbots, Hemingford Grey, Holywell, Earith, Little Thetford, Ely, Queen Adelaide and Littleport.

The other is the River Cam which used to be called the Granta after the Old English name for Cambridge, Grantebrycge. However, when the city’s name changed to Cambridge, the River was given a matching name. The River enters Cambridgeshire in the district of South Cambridgeshire and then passes through Little Green, Barrington, Harston, Granchester, Cambridge, Fen Ditton, Horningsea, Waterbeach and Upware before joining with River Great Ouse. The River Cam has become especially important to the Cambridge as it passes straight through the middle of the city. It’s the reason boat racing has become such a popular sport in Cambridge, especially amongst the students of the famous Cambridge University.

One of the more modern aspects of Cambridgeshire is Silicon Fen – an obvious reference to America’s Silicon Valley, it’s a large collection of high-tech businesses. Silicon Fen is bound by Saffron, Newmarket, Walden, Huntingdon, Royston and Ely. It’s currently the home of over 1,500 businesses and the thousands of pigeons trying to disturb them!

Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Cambridge

At present, thousands of Cambridgeshire homes and businesses are already fitted with solar panels. If you live in one of these solar-powered homes, you need to protect your photovoltaic panels from any kind of damage that can reduce its energy yield and, if severe enough, can make it completely unusable. Pigeons and other bird pests are one of the leading causes of solar panel damage. They nest around and under the panels, displacing and ruining the wires, and soiling the surface and the areas around the panels. Bird droppings are very corrosive and can build up quickly due to the abundance of pigeons. This can reduce your panel’s output by 30%. Not to mention these birds are often noisy and are potential carriers of contagious diseases.
