Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels Derby
In the UK, the popularity of solar power is at an all-time high. A recent survey revealed that 85% of the UK population approve of solar energy. As the costs of installing solar panels drop, the number of homes and businesses powered by solar energy continue to rise. There are now more than half a million British homes have had solar panels installed.
Having solar panels will not only reduce dependence on fossil fuels and help householders save up on utility costs, it can also increase the value of the house by 14%. If you haven’t yet, the perfect time to switch to solar power is right now. In Derbyshire, residents have plenty of options for solar panel installations. The city council also has several solar farms in the pipeline.
Although the initial cost of installing a solar panel system is still high, the panels require very little maintenance. The panels typically need occasional cleaning using a solar panel cleaning kit and they would be all right. Most homeowners can do this by themselves.
However, sometimes it can be difficult to clean all the panels, especially the ones that are hard to reach. In some cases, certain stains such as those caused by bird droppings, can be very hard to clean. For this you may need to hire a professional to do the cleaning for you.
Alternatively, the better option is to protect your solar panels from pigeons and other birds. Aside from leaving unsightly and hard to clean waste on the panels, pigeons often build nests under the panels. They could dislodge some of the wirings of the panel, leading to expensive repairs. Also, small animals such as squirrels are known to gnaw at the wires, damaging them. An effective anti-bird mesh will solve these problems.
