Solar Panels at Gitmo




Does anyone know what the plastic rods on top of the solar panels are for? My guess is that their purpose is to keep birds from perching there.


Gitmo has windmills too...

Were they hollow rods If so then my guess were they were part of a weather monitoring system tied into the solar array. We have some in the field that measure precipitation, temp, solar irradiance, wind speed and the like tied into the monitoring system.

Hmm, I know this is a bit of a delayed post, but I think I'm going to have to copy that GITMO PV idea to stop the birds perching on some of my panels near a feeder!
