With the rise of rotational grazing and intensive resource management, a portable power source to contain and protect livestock is more important than ever. Patriot electric fence has offered powerful, reliable solar energizer options for the past 15 years – now the range is even better with the release of their new SolarGuard 80 and SolarGuard 150.
These new energizers have the familiar ‘All in One’ design including the internal battery and solar panel in a compact and convenient package. The energy efficient solar panel recharges the internal battery to power the fence line. A large storage capacitor enables the energizer to operate up to 21 days without sunlight. The energizers are now more lightweight and portable than ever before, according to Patriot. The SG80 covers up to 15 acres/3 miles and the SG150 covers up to 40 acres/12 miles. The energizers are designed to perform in all weather conditions and conveniently stow fence leads when not in use. They easily mount to steel or wood posts and feature a flashing LED to let you know it’s working.
Additionally, these energizers are low impedance, meaning they are designed to deliver power to the end of the fence even under a heavy load, such as undergrowth and heavy foliage.
