Energisers | Solar powered
Using a solar panel to 'trickle charge' the electric fence battery, so that it never (or rarely) needs to be charged using a mains charger. In addition to a range of solar panels that can be retro-fitted to any 12V electric fence system, the Hotline Fire Drake energiser has been specifically designed as a self-contained solar electric fence energiser to provide you with an easy to use all-in-one electric fence power supply.
Essentially, solar panels can be used to power any size of fence energiser, including mains operated ones (in conjunction with a 240V inverter). The only difference is that you need to use larger panels. Also, many professional energisers, such as the Hotline Phoenix range, have a 12V battery backup option and can, in fact be used exclusively at 12V, making them ideal for solar power.
