Solar Panel Bird Proofing Glasgow

The city of Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland, though it’s not the capital of Scotland. Based in the west of the Central Lowlands, the city was built along the banks of the River Clyde.

Glasgow is the third biggest city in the United Kingdom and, though there is evidence of a prehistoric settlement in the area, the origins of the city come from around the 6th century when it was founded by St Mungo, who was the bishop of the area. Glasgow grew as a trading port in the 1700s, becoming an international trading hub and it grew again during industrialisation in the 1800s. During this era, Glasgow began to lay claim to the title of the ‘Second City of the British Empire’ as the industries of engineering, textiles and chemicals grew. Over the years, it has become one of the most iconic cities in the United Kingdom.

More recently Glasgow hosted the 2014 Commonwealth Games, it was third time the event had been held in Scotland but the first time it was based in Glasgow. The event saw a number of buildings being created including the Emirates Stadium and the Athlete’s Villages, which were built in the east of the city in Parkhead. Some other venues used during the games were the Ibrox Stadium located in the Ibrox district, the Tollcross International Swimming Centre in Tollcross, the SSE Hydro, SECC and the Clyde Auditorium in Finnieston and the Scotstoun Stadium in Scotstoun. Overall the games were considered a massive success – not even the Glaswegian pigeons could have ruined the event!

Solar Panel Bird Proofing

This is our main area of expertise. We have done hundreds of such jobs to our client’s satisfactions.

Pigeons getting under solar panels. This results in bird fouling accumulation on the roof or panels which can:

  • Reduce the power output of your panels. (see solar panel cleaning)
  • Results in increased insect activity in your home due to the fouling attracting insects looking to feed on it or lay eggs in it- I have seen a house become infested with flies because of this.
  • Panels becoming damaged by birds and stop working altogether.
  • The birds not letting you sleep due to the noise they make on the roof 24 hours a day.
  • Gutters becoming blocked with bird fouling and bird fouling in the garden

The Right Solution:

The best method of fixing this problem is to install a mesh based system (not chicken wire as some people commonly suggest) around the entire solar panel array. The benefits of this being done properly include:

  • Being very discreet and not very visible from ground level
  • Not invalidating the warranty of your panels
  • Involves no drilling and screwing thereby preventing damage to your panels.
  • Can be removed if necessary without any damage to the array to allow servicing.
