Pigeon Proofing and Facts

It’s never too Early or Late to have your system pigeon proofed.

If you get it done as soon as your system is installed, you’ll never have to worry about your solar panels becoming the hang out-nesting area for the neighborhood birds.

However, if your solar panels have become the local hang out, we’ll flush them out, clean out the nests, wrap the arrays in Black PVC coated wire welded Mesh and polish the panels back to new.
