Solar farms can be very profitable. By absorbing the rays of the sun, solar panels provide clean alternatives to the more traditional forms of electricity production. While the prospect of an unlimited energy source can be very appealing, the owners of solar farms can often incur heavy costs to run these farms. Indeed, when birds poop on these panels, it can be very expensive to clean. The corrosive nature of bird droppings means that specialised teams must be employed to clean these panels. In addition, when part of a solar panel is covered, it cannot absorb light to its full capacity, costing owners even more money.
At Lockbird, we believe the combination of cleaning fees and lost revenues makes it very worthwhile for solar farms to invest in our bird deterrent technologies.
