Protecting Solar Panels Against Birds in Agricultural Facilities

At the intersection of agricultural technology and avian conservation, a common challenge arises: the protection of solar panels from birds in agricultural facilities.

In a world where sustainable agriculture and coexistence with wildlife are priorities, finding innovative solutions to prevent crop damage while preserving the ecological balance becomes crucial.

From Prosolar Birds we want to propose an effective and ethical solution to mitigate conflicts between agriculture and avian fauna, addressing how we can protect solar panels without compromising biodiversity.

How Do Birds Affect Solar Panels in Agricultural Facilities?

Birds can affect solar panels in several ways:

Excrement and waste

Birds can leave droppings and debris on solar panels, reducing the efficiency of sunlight harvesting. This debris can clog solar cells and decrease the ability to generate electricity.

Physical Damage

Birds can cause direct physical damage to solar panels by landing, pecking, or nesting on them. This can result in scratches on the surface of the panels or even the breakage of the solar cells, negatively affecting their performance and lifespan.


When birds perch on solar panels, they can create shadows that reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the photovoltaic cells. This decreases electricity production and affects the efficiency of the system.

Interference with cleanliness

The presence of birds can make it difficult to clean and maintain solar panels regularly. Accumulated droppings and feathers may require more frequent and thorough cleaning to maintain system efficiency.

These factors can result in a decrease in the yield and lifespan of solar panels in agricultural facilities, which in turn affects the profitability and sustainability of solar-dependent farming operations.

Why is it essential to protect your solar panels from birds in agricultural facilities?

In the agricultural sector, the protection of solar panels against birds is essential to ensure production efficiency for several reasons:

Preservation of agricultural productivity

It prevents damage to the panels that could reduce the efficiency of solar energy production.

Reduced maintenance costs

Minimizes the need for panel cleaning and repair due to bird debris buildup.

Protecting Renewable Energy Investment

It ensures that solar panels maintain their optimal performance over time, maximizing the return on investment.

Solar Panel Protection Against Birds: Prosolar Birds PSB

The Prosolar Birds PSB device offers an effective solution for protecting solar panels against birds in agricultural facilities. Its innovative design, which harnesses the energy of the wind, creates random movements that deter birds from perching on the panels.

Made from strong and durable materials, the PSB easily adapts to different panel configurations, providing reliable protection without compromising agricultural productivity.

FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions)

What bird species are the most problematic for solar panels in agricultural installations?

Although the presence of birds can vary depending on the geographical location and the specific environment of each farm, some species are commonly identified as problematic. Among these are seagulls, pigeons, starlings, swallows, and crows. These birds tend to congregate in agricultural areas due to the availability of food and shelter, which increases the risk of damage to solar panels.

How do migratory birds affect solar panels?

Migratory birds can pose an additional challenge for solar panels during their migration periods. During these times, birds may congregate in agricultural areas in large numbers in search of food and rest, increasing the likelihood of damage to the solar panels. Bird migration can also coincide with periods of heightened agricultural activity, which exacerbates the problem.

Are there specific technological solutions to protect solar panels from birds?

Yes, the Prosolar Birds PSB is a technological solution specifically designed to protect solar panels from birds. It uses the power of the wind to create random movements that deter birds from perching on the panels without harming them.

What is the cost of implementing bird protection measures on solar panels?

The cost of implementing bird protection measures on solar panels can vary depending on the scale of the system and the type of solution used.

Although there may be an initial additional expense, effective protection of solar panels can result in long-term savings by preventing damage and production losses.
