Milton Keynes Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing

Solar Panel Pigeon Protection in Milton Keynes - 10 Year Guarantee

In Milton Keynes the local authority has thrown its weight behind CAPE – the Community Action Plan for Energy. The project is designed to connect communities in the area and help them develop local energy schemes in particular with renewable energy like solar power in minds. The CAPE website gives residents and businesses local to the Milton Keynes area access to satellite based information that allows them to see how efficient or otherwise they are with their energy use. And it gives them access to suppliers  who can help them do something about it. CAPE also allows Milton Keynes residents to apply for grants in areas like renewable energy.

This and other factors has led to a big increase in the demand for Milton Keynes solar panel companies and to the number of residents requiring solar panel proofing measures in Buckinghamshire at a whole, including Newport Pagnell and Bletchley.

If you look closely at the roofs in the area, you will see that many of them have wire mesh down the side. This is to stop pigeons getting underneath and nesting. It’s a huge problem, and one with the local solar panel companies don’t tell you about. You may soon find yourself looking for a Milton Keynes pigeon proofing service.

Pigeons like to nest high up, somewhere safe, warm and sheltered. And the gap under solar panels gives them exactly what they want – on top of your roof. This leads to a build-up of debris and toxic pigeon guano on the panels, and under them as well. This can not only affect the panels’ performance over times, but can also corrode the fittings. Plus with female pigeons underneath the solar panels and males hanging around nearby, usually also on your roof, they will create a hell of a noise, and a hell of a mess.

The good news is that here at British Bird Control we can help through our Milton Keynes solar panel pigeon proofing service. We know just how stop the pigeons getting underneath solar panels, so that they will move on, long term.  And we offer a gilt-edged TEN-YEAR GUARANTEE with all our solar panel pigeon protection work in Buckinghamshire.

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!
