solar panels on roof of home

Squirrels and other critters can wreak havoc on many different types of electrical systems, including your home’s solar panels. Fortunately, our Line Guard and Pole Guard systems are designed to help prevent squirrels’ access to your roof, protecting your solar panels and your power.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar panels are a type of sustainable power source that absorb energy from the sun and convert it into usable power that can replace traditional electricity. Because solar panels utilize renewable resources, many modern home and business owners have begun to install them as an alternative to non-renewable power sources. However, unprotected solar panels can be as vulnerable to damage from squirrels and other animals as power lines and repairing solar panels can be even more expensive.

How Can Squirrels Damage Solar Panels?

Squirrels and other critters can wreak havoc on several types of power sources. Squirrels that make their homes on your roof by building nests under solar panels can interfere with the efficiency of the panel, and they can also cause damage to exposed wires by chewing on them or getting tangled in them. This damage can lead to power outages or permanently damaged panels that need to be replaced. By proactively taking steps to make accessing your roof more difficult, you can protect your solar panels from squirrels, chipmunks, snakes, and other critters.
