Wire mesh bird proofing on solar panels offers several benefits

Prevents Nesting

The wire mesh creates a barrier that prevents birds from nesting underneath the solar panels. This is important because bird nests and debris can accumulate under the panels, potentially causing damage and reducing their efficiency.

Minimizes Damage

Wire mesh acts as a physical deterrent, preventing birds from accessing the space beneath the solar panels. This helps minimize the damage caused by bird droppings, which can corrode the panels over time.

Protects Wiring and Components

Installing wire mesh can help protect the wiring and components of the solar panels from bird-related damage or interference. Birds can sometimes peck at wires, potentially causing electrical shorts or system failures.

Long-lasting and Durable

Wire mesh used for bird proofing is typically made from durable materials that are resistant to UV degradation and corrosion. It can withstand harsh weather conditions and provide long-term protection for the solar panels.

Maintains Warranty

Wire mesh bird proofing does not require drilling or penetrating the solar panels, which helps to maintain the warranty of the panels. This ensures that any bird proofing measures will not void the manufacturer's warranty.

It's important to note that wire mesh bird proofing should be properly installed to ensure its effectiveness and to avoid any damage to the solar panels. Consulting professional guidelines or seeking expert advice can help in implementing the wire mesh bird proofing correctly for optimal benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do Solar Panels Need Cleaning?

Cleaning solar panels on a regular schedule is essential to maximizing energy output, lowering power bills, and maintaining the panels for the long term. Dirty solar panels produce less energy than clean panels. This results in higher electricity bills because the solar supplement is reduced. Most residential solar panels produce from 250 to 400 watts per hour per panel. So a clean four-panel system that outputs 1,000 to 1,600 watts per hour would drop to 670 to 1,100 watts per hour if highly dirty.


When Is the Best Time to Clean Solar Panels?

Cloudy days are best for cleaning. Solar panels get really hot in full sun, and the glass can crack if you douse them with cold water. If you have extended periods of sunny weather like we do in California, clean the panels in the early morning or late evening when they’re cool. Seasonally, the best time for cleaning also depends on local conditions. In a region with heavy snowfall, a good cleaning in early spring removes debris deposited with the snow, while a mid-to-late fall cleaning clears contaminants that fly around in the summer air. Smoke and haze from wildfires can also leave heavy deposits that should be cleaned whenever they occur.


How often should you get a gutter cleaning?

We always tell our customers this depends on the amount of trees and the types of trees in your neighborhood. Homes with little-to-no tree coverage around their home usually can get by with one gutter cleaning per year, or sometimes every other year. We suggest at least one yearly gutter cleaning because it’s important to have somebody examine your roof at least once a year.


Why gutter cleaning is important?

Clogged gutters lead to all kinds of problems. Not only will they cause your gutter system to come loose and cause other damages to your gutter system. But once they start over flowing they will cause wood rot around the home, water will start getting into the walls, and also it will lead to basement leaks. Keeping your gutters cleaned regularly will save you a lot of money on repairs in the long run.


When is the best time of the year to get a gutter cleaning?

The best times of the year to have your gutters cleaned are at the end of fall, and the end of spring. For our customers that only require one gutter cleaning per year, we always suggest getting them cleaned at the end of fall. (Early December-Early January) It’s important to wait until the trees have dropped all their leaves before you clean the gutters. The idea is to wait as long as possible but get it done before the freezing temperatures set in. If you need two cleanings per year, then the end of fall and the end of spring are your two best times. Just like in the fall, trees drop a bunch of debris in the spring. Like flowers, seed pods, and pollen. For the spring, we always suggest the end of May thru the end of June.
