How to prevent birds from nesting under solar panels

Panel performance is reduced when natural ventilation under the panels is obstructed by branches and nesting material. The more the panels heat up, the more their performance decreases. In addition, there will be an increased risk of fire.

In photovoltaic installations on the roof, the branches they carry can scratch the back sheet of the panel and cause earth faults.

After installing the BirdBlocker, you are 99% sure that birds cannot pass under your photovoltaic panels. The strips are easy to attach to the framed photovoltaic panels with specially developed stainless steel clamps. Unfortunately, screwing or gluing the strips to the frame is not allowed, as this could affect the warranty of your solar panels.

The BirdBlocker system works best when placed at the same time as the panels. If birds have had the chance to nest under your panels, they will often do anything to return.

Very importantfor existing photovoltaic installations, it is recommended not to place the BirdBlocker during the breeding period (from mid-April to mid-July). It may even be illegal in many countries to remove nests during this time.

The heat under the solar panels, as well as the electrical installation, can also be very dangerous for the integrity of the birds.
