Protect your solar installation with squirrel guard

Do you want to do your part to combat climate change and preserve the environment? Switching to solar energy is the best way to do so. Solar energy allows you to adopt a sustainable lifestyle and reduce your carbon footprint. Additionally, it gives you energy independence and savings in your utility bills.

Undoubtedly, a solar power system is a valuable asset for your home. Here’s how you can protect it.

Safeguard your solar power system

Typically, a home solar installation will have solar panels on the roof. This exposes the panels to weather elements, local wildlife, and environmental debris like twigs and dry leaves. Birds and critters build their homes around the solar panels, which can damage power lines. They can also peck and chew on the parts and wires. The birds and animals might get hurt too.

Besides, twigs and leaves can collect under your panels, causing issues to the parts and potential fire hazards. These challenges can disrupt the solar power system’s functioning and lead to expensive repairs. Therefore, it is important to safeguard panels from birds and animals.

That’s where a squirrel guard can help.

What is a squirrel guard?

A squirrel guard is a PVC-coated aluminum fencing that wraps around the solar panels and saves the equipment from damages caused by the creatures. At the same time, birds and critters will not get injured.

How do I install a squirrel guard?

At GreenBrilliance, we offer a squirrel guard along with solar panels. We can install it alongwith the rooftop panel setup. This convenient bundled solution saves you from the hassles of external installation or a service call later on.

Solar experts suggest that it is not a good idea to set up the critter guards yourself, as it can be perilous to you as well as the existing system. If done incorrectly, it can compromise the system. If you have an existing solar energy solution and want to add a squirrel guard, you can contact us. Our qualified and experienced professionals can help you every step of the way during the squirrel guard installation.
