Protecting Solar Power for over 200 homes in Sheppard Air Force Base

With the rise in solar panel installations, a new challenge has emerged: critters seeking shelter beneath them. At Shepherd Roofing Renovations, we recognized this problem and took proactive steps to address it by installing critter screen guards between the roof and solar panels. Tesla at the Sheppard Air Force Base contracted us to help install Critter Screen Guards to about 200 houses at the base.

The Importance of Critter Screen Guards

When you invest in solar panels, you want them to be as efficient and durable as possible. Unfortunately, some animals, such as pigeons and squirrels, see the space beneath solar panels as an ideal location for nesting and shelter. This can lead to several issues:

  1. Damage to Solar Panels: Animals can cause physical damage to your solar panels by chewing through wires or scratching the surface. Over time, this damage can reduce the efficiency of your solar panels and result in costly repairs.
  2. Reduced Efficiency: Nests and debris under the panels can block sunlight, reducing the efficiency of your solar system. This means you’ll generate less electricity and see a decrease in energy savings.
  3. Fire Hazard: Chewed wires and nests can create a fire hazard, especially in dry and sunny climates.

To address these issues, Shepherd Roofing Renovations decided to take a proactive approach by installing critter screen guards between the roofs and solar panels.

How Critter Screen Guards Work

Critter screen guards are specially designed barriers that prevent animals from accessing the space beneath solar panels. They are typically made from durable materials like stainless steel mesh or galvanized wire. These guards are installed securely around the perimeter of the solar panel array, leaving no gaps for critters to enter.

The benefits of critter screen guards are clear:

  1. Protection: They provide a physical barrier that prevents animals from getting under the solar panels.
  2. Preservation: By keeping animals out, these guards help maintain the integrity and functionality of your solar panel system.
  3. Safety: Critter screen guards reduce fire hazards and minimize health risks associated with animal infestations.
