Getting Rid of Pigeons under Solar Panels in Worcestershire

Solar Panel Protection from Pigeons in Worcestershire

The city council of Worcestershire is encouraging its residents to make homes more energy efficient and reduce its carbon footprint. In fact, the city council runs the Energy Efficiency Advice Scheme, a program that provides free advice to householders. Also, the Warmer Worcestershire project provides advice on improving the energy efficiency and insulation of homes in the area.

If you already have a solar photovoltaic system installed in your home, you need to keep it in excellent working condition in order for you to maximize your investment. Like any household appliance, solar PVs are subject to normal wear and tear. However, some external factors can accelerate the deterioration of the system if preventive measures are not put in place.

One of these factors is the damage caused by pigeons and other bird pests. Large flocks of birds typically congregate on roofs, leaving their excrement on any available surface including rooftop solar panels. The droppings, aside from posing a significant health hazard to humans due to the presence of bacteria such as salmonella, can also cause a significant reduction in the output of your solar panel system. During nesting season, some pigeons may also build nests of twigs and straw in the recesses under the panels, often displacing sensitive wiring.
