What is a solar electric fence energiser and how does it work?
A solar-powered electric fence energiser is an fence energiser that runs on solar energy.
For this purpose, a battery-powered 12V electric fence energiser and a suitable solar module are usually combined with each other.
The 12V battery is then continuously recharged by the solar module and the stored solar energy can also be used at night to operate the electric fence.
Nowadays you can operate (almost) all electric fences from short, vegetation-free sheep fences to more heavily overgrown cattle fences of more than 20 kilometres in length using a solar module.
If you do not yet own a 12V energiser, we are happy to offer you a complete package with a energiser that is right for you, a suitable solar panel and other accessories.
If you only need a weaker electric fence device for small fences or paddocks, a electric fence device with directly integrated solar module could also make sense for you.
What advantages does a solar-powered electric fence offer?
No ongoing electricity costs: With a solar module, the battery of your 12V electric fence energiser is continuously recharged with free solar energy. This means that you no longer incur any electricity costs for recharging the battery.
No more battery changes and second batteries necessary: Since the battery is constantly being recharged, you do not have to remove it for recharging. You save the maintenance work and also the acquisition costs of around 80 - 100 euros for a replacement battery.
By charging and discharging evenly, the battery lasts twice as long: A solar module charges the battery of your electric fence during the day. The stored energy is then transferred to the electric fence at night. These even charging and discharging cycles extend the life of your battery.
Which electric fencers can be supplemented with a solar module?
Basically (almost) all common 12V electric fence energisers can be operated with a solar module.
However, you must ensure that the solar module can provide the energy required for your electric fence.
For example, if you have a powerful electric fence energiser with an electrical output of 7 joules or more, you need a solar module with at least 45 watts.
If you "only" have a weaker fence energiser, a solar module with 5, 8 or 15 watts may also be sufficient for you.
You can often find out which solar module fits your electric fence energiser in the description of your electric fence. In addition, the product descriptions of the solar modules contain lists of compatible electric fencers.
