Blackburn Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing

Solar Panel Pigeon Protection in Blackburn - 10 Year Guarantee

The solar power installation story gained further momentum in the Blackburn area when MGS Plastics became the latest Lancashire company to turn to renewable energy as it invested over £40,000 in a 49kw unit to help power the company’s facilities and reduce its carbon footprint. The injection moulding firm expects a return on the solar units to be within six year.

Blackburn itself, a town just nine miles north of the Greater Manchester border sits within an important green belt region that extends into the wider surrounding counties. The green belt policy is in place to reduce urban sprawl and stop towns in the nearby Greater Manchester and Merseyside conurbations from further convergence, thus protecting the identity of outlying communities.

Many Blackburn residents joined the solar power club when government tariffs were at their most generous, although that equation has changed now. What solar panel companies in Blackburn failed to mention was that they were also creating a custom-made pigeon nesting area on the top of their properties. If you are a female pigeon you can breed all year round in the UK and you are constantly on the look-out for somewhere to nest. You want somewhere that’s nice and high up away from predators, close to a food source, and if it’s warm and sheltered too, Bob’s your uncle!

What happens is the lady pigeons stay under the panels looking after the nests, eggs and chicks, while the males search for food and create a mess on and around your roof tiles and on the panels themselves (and an almighty racket!). If you have pigeons nesting under solar panel, we can help.

Are pigeons affecting the performance of my solar panels?

If you have birds getting under solar panels and believe this could be adversely affecting the performance of the panels and the very reason you got them in the first place, please let us know during the telephone consultation.

We have teams that can evaluate and fix solar panel performance on the spot, but if this is the case we may need to make a separate visit before the solar panel proofing takes place to check whether there is a short circuit, broken solar panel inverter, or other electrical issue which would make it dangerous to be on the roof until fixed. Please also let us know if you think there are dead adult pigeons under solar panels when we talk on the phone – they may have been electrocuted!
