Bird Proofing of Solar Panels

The nuisance of birds nesting under solar panels is becoming an increasingly common problem. Pigeons are particularly drawn to nesting under solar panels and because they are social animals, they often do so in numbers.

The birds are attracted by the warmth and shelter that the space between the roof railing and the panels provides. It’s also a great place for safety from predators and adverse weather conditions.

Bird droppings cause considerable toxic mess, but the problem for your solar panels isn’t how they look.

The droppings are acidic and can lead to corrosion of the aluminium frame and possibly the failure of cells within the panels. Nesting birds can also damage the photovoltaic (PV) system of the solar panels and dislodge the wiring. This is all damage that is costly to repair.

Prevention, in this situation, is the way to avoid needing a cure! Nu-Look Cleaners can bird proof your solar panels with mesh, preventing them from settling where they’re not wanted.

Why choose Nu-Look Cleaners to bird proof your solar panels?

We use a combination of roofing ladders and rope access techniques to access the panels safely.

A high grade mesh is used to cover the panels which is secured by specially designed clips that don’t cause any damage to the solar panel system.

Once the protective mesh barrier is in place, we clean the panels so that they work to their optimum capacity.

Customer experience is key to the success of our proactive customer service team will provide the assistance you need.

Professional Solar Panel Cleaning Services

Over time, solar panels accumulate dirt, dust, and debris that can decrease their efficiency. This is because the dirt and debris block the sun’s rays, preventing them from reaching the solar cells. As a result, the panels produce less electricity, which can lead to increased energy bills.

In addition, if the panels are not cleaned regularly, the dirt and debris can cause permanent damage to the solar cells, reducing the lifespan of the panels.

Chemical cleaning involves the use of specialized cleaning solutions to remove dirt and debris from the surface of the solar panels. This method is effective, but it requires special equipment and expertise to ensure that the cleaning solution is not harmful to the solar panels.

The frequency of solar panel cleaning depends on several factors, including the location of the panels, the amount of rainfall in the area, and the level of dirt and debris accumulation on the panels.

Solar panel cleaning is essential to ensure maximum efficiency and longevity of solar panels. Regular maintenance and cleaning can help prevent damage to the solar cells, reduce energy bills, and increase the lifespan of the panels.

There are several techniques for cleaning solar panels, including manual cleaning, automated cleaning, and chemical cleaning. The frequency of solar panel cleaning depends on several factors, but in general, solar panels should be cleaned at least once or twice a year.
