Somerset Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing

Solar Panel Pigeon Protection in Somerset - 10 Year Guarantee

Somerset is among the UK’s leaders when it comes to renewable energy strategy and companies specialising in sustainable energy sources. And its location and climate means the residents have the ideal climate to take advantage of the savings benefits solar power can offer.

The stunning Somerset Energy Innovation Centre in Bridgwater is a flagship of what the area has to offer, and offers excellent business support to work in the low carbon centre, centred on the Hinckley Point development which is expected to produce some 25,000 jobs for the area, and also for the solar power sector.

The south west of England has seen some of the most significant take-up in household solar power in the whole of the UK. Unfortunately many people who have them fitted are soon faced with the prospect of living with pigeons on their roof – or dealing with the problem.

Pigeons nest year round in the UK and a female will produce three or four broods per year. She’s looking for somewhere nice and high, safe, warm and sheltered to nest in, and nothing quire fits the bill as nicely as the gap under your panels. Meanwhile the male partner (pigeons mate up long term) will be nearby creating a mess and a lot of noise, usually on other parts of your property.

The guano they create is no laughing matter. Apart from being very unsightly, the uric acid present makes it corrosive and the guano itself is a carrier for many nasty pathogens, bacteria and diseases which can be passed onto humans.

The good news is that here at British Bird Control we can help through our Somerset 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 throughout Somerset including Taunton, Yeovil, Minehead and Taunton.

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!
