Nottingham Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing

Solar Panel Pigeon Protection in Nottingham - Ten-Year Guarantee

Under The Nottingham Sustainable Strategy the council is committed on an on-going basis to reduce consumption of non-renewable energy and cut Co2 emissions sources across the Nottingham catchment area. Indeed the plan is for Nottingham to be recognised as the front runner in the UK in the race for sustainable energy.

Indeed under their action plan, the council is looking for 20% of its own energy to be created from zero carbon sources and an across the board minimum 26% reduction in carbon emissions through the region, with a target of a 455 reduction.
Part of this picture has been to encourage residents to consider fitting solar panels to their homes and businesses, and it’s not taken long for pigeons in particular to take advantage.

What the solar panel companies in Nottingham fail to tell you when they are fitting your solar panels, is that they are creating the perfect safe, warm, protected and sheltered place for pigeons to nest, exactly where they want to – on your roof!

The gap left between the roof tiles and the solar panels is the perfect space for the female pigeons to create a nest and raise young, while the male birds keep watch on other parts of the roof, both of them creating a nuisance, a mess and potentially damaging the performance of your panels.
The good news is that here at British Bird Control we can help, and we offer a gilt-edged TEN-YEAR GUARANTEE with all our solar panel pigeon protection work.

We are full British Pest Control Association (BPCA) members and offer fast, friendly and efficient solar panel pigeon protection service in Nottinghamshire and the surrounding towns and villages.

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!
