Protecting Solar Panels From Pigeons

Pigeons can nest under solar panels and cause damage

Robco’s pigeon guard is designed to look solid and completely flush with solar panels from the ground. We use a solid flashing guard instead of netting or mesh for stronger protection and a cleaner look.

Solar panels produce heat that needs to be dissipated. The guard has 1/4” air gap along the edge where it meets the roof tiles and where it is attached to the panel skirting. The gap is enough for rainwater and heat to escape but not let in pigeons.

Robco has used this guard design for more than eight years, and several punishing Las Vegas summers have shown no issues.
