Canberra has a lot of birds because we have a lot of trees. And with birds, come bird droppings. They can affect a panel’s performance to a greater to degree than dust build-up.

The common string-inverter PV system might result in minimal, or no energy being produced if bird droppings cover part or all of just one solar panel. A micro-inverter system might see the affected panel/s producing no or limited power.

Trees situated near your panels will not only drop their leaves and branches leaving sticky sap spots (which pollen sticks to) but attract birds as well. These cause bird droppings and debris over time.
