Installing solar panels on your roof has many benefits. It’s good for the environment, it saves you a lot of money and, specifically, in New Jersey and New York there are many state incentives to having a solar energy system on your home.
Unfortunately, squirrels and other critters also enjoy it when you go solar. If not properly protected, certain homes are more exposed to critter issues. Homes next to overhanging trees or nearby structures are especially vulnerable. The critters, and birds, like to create nests under the nice and cozy solar panels and, worst of all, they gnaw at the electrical wires and other sensitive components.
Another thing to look out for is, after a snowfall, when the snow starts melting a little it can slide off of the solar panels in chunks. If you experience snow falling of your solar panel system in large amounts, or you think you might, then snow guards can be an effective tool to minimize this issue.
