Why are pests attracted to solar panels?

> Why are pests attracted to solar panels?

Solar panelling has been developed to be a renewable technology that can be an effective way to save on electric bills. Therefore, with many commercial and residential properties installing solar panels to reduce cost, in turn we have seen an unexpected increase in maintenance costs due to installations giving new opportunities for nesting birds.

These dark photovoltaic solar panels situated on roofs are designed to attract light which radiates heat. Therefore, these installations are beneficial to pigeons and other nesting birds, as they provide shelter, protection and warmth which are idyllic conditions for nesting or roosting. The reason why the solar panels require proofing, is to deter such birds and other rodents from becoming residents under the panels. Most birds, especially pigeons establish their nests under such panels and in doing so they bring debris, rodents and noise, inclusive of fouling and leaving behind excrement on the installations. Combining such factors, this results in costly maintenance repairs to wiring, panel surfaces and components.

> Why are nesting birds and other pests a problem for solar panels?

  • Pigeons, gulls, jackdaws, squirrels and other nesting birds all have potential to damage any cabling and wiring surrounding the photovoltaic panels.
  • They can also damage the photovoltaic panels themselves.
  • They leave their droppings, or excrement on the photovoltaic panels and surrounding areas which is corrosive and will quickly create a lot of damage.
  • Feathers, debris and other nesting materials can probe into the panels and reduce the effectiveness and output efficiency provided from your solar panels.
  • Many nesting birds, especially pigeons have potential to cause health hazards as they are carrier of pathogens. Such pathogens cause diseases such as salmonellosis, psittacosis (ornithosis) and fowl pest.
  • Collectively, any birds or rodents nesting on your roof or under solar panels will create a lot of noise and this will be a nuisance to anyone living in the premises.

> What pests can cause damage to solar panels?
