The Need for Bird Proofing Solar Panels

Solar panels are becoming more and more popular as they further reduce our energy expenditure.

Birds and nocturnal animals such as possums can nest under these solar panels and begin living and breeding there. Animal debris such as droppings, eggs, dead birds and other rubbish can then start to accumulate in these areas.

The problems caused by these birds can be immense. Gutters can become blocked due to the droppings and water can then overflow from the gutters and cause flooding. The smell and disease caused by the eggs and dead birds can also be a problem.
