A mix of PV and water panels? No problem!

Attaching mesh to PV solar panels on a home with a water heater panel also installed

The vast majority of the problems we encounter with pigeons nesting under solar panels is with PV arrays – the kind of panel that generate electricity. However, some homes have water heating panels – and these suffer the same problem. The solution is the same; a ‘skirt’ is attached around the perimeter to stop the birds from getting under the array and that puts an end to that!

The home we were working on for this job had both water and PV panels. Not a problem for us; there’s a change to the attachment system we use but, aside from that, it’s business as usual and by late afternoon, we had another home safe from the pigeon menace!
