Solar Panel Solutions
Why are nesting birds a problem for solar systems?
Birds nesting under the panels will cause some major damage cables and damage panels. Bird will deposit droppings and other debris on the panels, thus reducing output less. Proofing the panels also present a fire risk if they nest under the panels and the risk of block the roof’s drainage system with fouling and nest materials.
