Bird Proofing One


Don’t let these pests ruin your great investment, bird proofing your system will ensure that you won’t have any issues with nests and bird waste on your panels and on your roof which can cause major issues down the road.


Owning solar panels is a fantastic way to utilize the power of the sun and generate clean, sustainable energy. Both the environment and your wallet benefit from this. However, like any good thing, it can come with its own set of challenges, particularly when birds and pigeons decide to turn your solar panels into their cozy nesting spot. It’s time to explore the details of this serious issue, understand why they do it, and what you can do to protect your investment.

Why Do Birds and Pigeons Love Solar Panels?

Picture this: you have a cozy, safe home to live in, protected from extreme weather conditions, predators, and disturbances. This is exactly what the space under solar panels offers to birds and pigeons. Here’s why they find it so inviting:

  • Shelter: As solar panels provide a secure shelter, they shield our feathered friends from direct sunlight, rain, wind, and snow. It's like their own little fortress.
  • Warmth: You must know that solar panels absorb sunlight and generate warmth. The snug space beneath them creates an ideal environment for birds to nest and stay toasty.
  • Safety: Have you seen that solar panels often leave a small gap between themselves and the roof? Well, this gap offers birds a relatively quiet nesting area, away from people and potential disturbances. It's like their private hideaway.

Is Pigeon Nesting Under Solar Panels a Concern?

The answer is a resounding "Yes!" Pigeons nesting under your rooftop solar panels can lead to a series of issues that can affect your panels, roof, and even your well-being. Let's take a closer look:

  • Affected Structure: Bird nests under solar panels can interfere with water drainage and airflow below the panels. This can lead to water damage and overheating, potentially causing structural damage to your roof and panels. Think of it like a clogged drain - it's a problem that needs fixing.
  • Reduced Solar Panel Efficiency: Bird droppings can accumulate on the panels, blocking precious sunlight and causing your panels to lose efficiency. For example, if your solar panels are operating at 100% efficiency, bird droppings can reduce this to 80% or even lower. It's like trying to drive your car with a dirty windshield - you won't get very far.
  • Risks to Health: Birds and pigeons can carry various diseases, such as Histoplasmosis, Salmonella, E. coli, and even parasites like bird mites. Their nesting increases the risk of contracting these illnesses, putting you, your family, and your pets in harm's way. It's like having uninvited guests with contagious illnesses in your home.
  • Higher Costs for Maintenance: To keep your solar panels clean and maintain them, you may need to invest in frequent cleaning and repairs. This can translate to additional costs and headaches that no one wants. It's like having to clean your house constantly because of the mess left behind by your guests. Pigeon nesting under your solar panels isn't something to be taken lightly. But there's no need to panic; Crystal Solar is here to come to the rescue.
