Solar panels for electric fences
Solar panels are seeing more frequent use with electric fences. Newer and better technologies are also making them economically advantageous. Using solar panels you can enjoy environmentally friendly, low-maintenance and low cost operation of your energiser. You can usually do without needing a second battery for battery-operated energisers. The solar panel saves the sun's energy in the energiser battery throughout the daytime. The battery can then continue to operate during the night. Since charging and discharging happens more evenly (reduction of the discharge depth), the lifetime of the battery can be up to twice as long.
Using solar panels for energy production with electric fences
There is a choice of 5–50 watt solar panels depending on the charging current required. You can enjoy maintenance-free operation throughout the grazing season.
At Electric-Fence you can find complete kits that combine a battery energiser with a suitable solar panel.
