Electric fence: big, powerful, costly, high energy
Electric fence is a powerful deterrent to would-be intruders. It is the ultimate deterrent, an intimidating psychological presence and packs a mighty punch. Not at all pleasant to be zapped by 10,000 volts!
What you might not realise is that although it delivers a powerful charge it can be run on a solar panel. Ideal for remote regions with limited infrastructure. And it’s not just suitable for sunny climates. With power consumption as low as 3 watts (and still delivering the full high voltage protection) it can be run on renewable energy anywhere in the world.
Running off a 10w solar panel the energiser consumes very little power and the battery backup ensures that the fence will still protect when the lights go off.
So light bulb or electric fence?
