Birds love solar panels, particularly pigeons. The spaces under the panels make it the perfect place for pigeons to take refuge. This can cause a host of problems, particularly pigeon droppings damaging the wiring and the build of dirt on the panels which will affect the overall system production.

Bird Solar Netting Options

There are multiple different methods available to use for keeping birds away from your property including methods such as netting , which prevents the birds from nesting on the panels/ in the equipment. Another common bird proofing technique is the bird mesh designed to keep birds away from your property by closing any entries for them to nest in.

We believe this is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of any bird issues. Bird deterrents used vary from bird spikes which are harmless to the birds but prevents them from landing on the panels and causing any damage to your property. An electric shock is another harmless bird deterrent used to prevent birds from getting in your panels or landing on them. They work by scaring off the birds with an electric shock that is not dangerous to the birds but stops their presence.
