Of course, where you find pigeons, you will also find pigeon droppings. This is especially the case after the babies have hatched and started wandering from the nest. When you have four or five pigeons on your roof, you’re going to have quite a bit of excrement up there.

The problem is that pigeon droppings are more acidic than most bird droppings. As they build up, they can start to corrode the hardware that keeps your solar panels running properly. Because the space between your solar panels and your roof is narrow, it isn’t easy to get in there and clean out the droppings on a regular basis.

You can pidgeon proof a solar panel by installing solar panel bird mesh to your system. Our process of installing solar panel pigeon protection to your roof’s solar system involves using eco-friendly mesh material that will cover every side of your panels. We use clips instead of bolts or screws to prevent your solar system’s warranty from being voided as well. These clips are incredibly study and easily maintained, and can stand the harshest weather that Brisbane can throw at them, including rain, wind and extreme heat.

You can see what this meshing and the clips we use on the picture to the left.

Thankfully, there is no need to harm any pigeons under your solar panels. They will often fly off and leave the roof when our team climb onto the roof. You may not agree about taking a nesting spot away from a bird however, pigeons have plenty of other options for nesting. In fact, nesting beneath your solar panels isn’t the safest option for them. They’re at risk of being prey upon by rats, their nests can cause fires and their young can often pass away from the heat so it’s always best to encourage them to leave.

Here at Big Sky Energy, we’re very much animal people so we won’t harm any wildlife when relocating them.

Absolutely not. We do not recommend installing a DIY solar panel bird proofing mesh kit you bought at Bunnings or a hardware store for a number of reasons.

  1. Dangerous: Working on your roof without the proper safety precautions could lead to serious injury or worse.
  2. Expensive: If you damage your solar panel glass, your warranty won’t cover it’s repair or replacement.
  3. Illegal: By law you need a solar electrician to do any work on your solar system.
