Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Lincolnshire
Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Lincoln
Lincolnshire is at the forefront of solar energy generation, being the site of one of the largest solar farms in the UK. The Fen Farm Solar Park in Lincolnshire boasts of 5000 panels with a capacity of 1MW and saves up to 377 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. Around the county, more solar farms are in the pipeline and the number of homes and businesses installing rooftop solar panels is increasing. These are bound to increase the estimated 3.4% total electricity generated from solar power in the UK.
Having a solar panel at home will not only help reduce utility bills but also help in reducing the
dependence to harmful fossil fuels. An environment-friendly house is definitely the way to the future.
However, just like any household appliance, solar panels need to be well taken care of to maximize its productivity for a long time.
They are prone to dirt and debris from external factors such as leaves, twigs, pollen, dust and bird droppings. Pigeons are typically the main culprits of the latter due to their large populations across the UK. They congregate on the rooftops and often roost on the panels and unavoidably leave their
excrement behind. A buildup of this waste material can blot out the sun and reduce the power generation capacity of the panel.
A large flock of pigeons may also lead to excessive buildup of bird droppings and increased risk of scratches. All these lead to a reduction in energy yield and possible expensive damage. Some birds also find the spaces beneath the panels as perfect places to build their nests. Unfortunately, this can also cause the birds to displace some of the wires, leading to malfunctions.
