With the world embracing environmentally friendly developments, solar power and solar-based technology is now en vogue. Companies are now developing as many solar-powered products as they can, and the electric fencing industry is no exception.
These days, it’s becoming increasingly common to see a solar electric fence around an industrial or agricultural property, as they’re effective at keeping people and animals out, and can be fined tune to only deal temporary and minor injuries, which is especially important in locales that see a lot of wildlife activity.
But if that’s not convincing enough for you, here’s a list of some of the benefits of fitting a solar electric fence to your property.
First and foremost, a solar electric fence runs off of the sun, as the name would imply. That means that its primary energy source is not only free, it’s renewable. Yes, the sun might not be out during the night, but during the day, not only will the sun power your fence, it’ll also charge the backup batteries, which will keep it running when the sun sets. The initial costs and rare maintenance costs are the only real financial burdens with this.Basically, you’ll pay more upfront for a product that has lower associated maintenance costs, meaning you get better value over a long period of time.
Little need for maintenance.
Solar power fencing is designed to fare better in different weather conditions compared to traditional fencing. They last long, require little maintenance and doesn’t really need constant checkups, thanks to their testing standards. The backup batter which charges during the day powers the system at night or when there’s a power failure. Contrast this to traditional methods of generating power, which require regular monitoring and maintenance.
And no, we don’t mean financially sound, we talked about that already. Solar powered fencing draws its power from a renewable source, instead of pollutant-heavy and greenhouse producing fossil fuels, meaning that they’re much more environmentally friendly compared to their traditional counterparts. There’s minimal pollution, which comes from the manufacturing process of the solar cells and the fence itself, but other than that, it’s very much Mother Nature-friendly.
