MAKE ELECTRICITY WHILE THE SUN SHINES – AND EVEN WHEN IT IS SHADY!

The S range of solar powered electric fencing energisers from Gallagher offers reliability and flexibility and
the capacity to power fences up to 30kmlong. Andtheyarecurrently eligible for grant funding under the Countryside Productivity Small Grant scheme.

The market for solar energisers has been showing strong growth as farmers and stock owners look for a more environmentally friendly way to adequately power fencing. Uptake had been constrained by concerns over reliability and the ability to generate sufficient power in anything other than full sunlight. The new Gallagher range tackles these concerns head on to make solar energisers a widely suitable option.

“We have invested in the development of robust, lightweight solar powered energizers to meet the demand for reliable energisers that do not require an external power source,” explains Mark Oliver, UK Regional Sales Manager with Gallagher Europe. “Advances in solar power technologies allow increased operational effectiveness even in reduced levels of sunlight.

“The result is a range of lightweight energizers that works on daylight,givingtheperfectsolution for a farmer who is in an area without a power supply or needs a mobile fence that covers long distances.”

The range comprises of seven energisers ranging from the entry level S10 which has a stored energy capacity of 0.1 Joules, weighs 1.9kg and will power a 1km fence, through to the outstanding top of the range S400.

The S400 is the strongest integrated solar device on the market with a stored energy capacity of 4.0 Joules. It can power an impressive 30km of fence while being easily moved and connected. The energizer weighs just 12kg.

New technology allows Gallagher to power a fence of up to 30 km using a relatively small solar panel. The solar panel is integrated in the device and as it works on daylight, as opposed to direct sunlight, is more reliable, working across all weather conditions.

The energisers also features a unique battery management system which ensures that at times when there
is not enough daylight, such as
during short winter days, the device automatically slows down the pulse on the fence. This spares the battery, while ensuring the fence is sufficiently powered at all times so offering power to your fence 12 months of the year.

“The Gallagher solar range offers a user-friendly and cost-effective solution to powering electric fences with high reliability,” Mr Oliver continues. “Using a Gallagher solar energiser reduces running costs, increases peace of mind because the fence will be adequately powered and avoids the need to regularly check and replace batteries.” The average battery life on the Gallagher S solar range is three years.”

Energisers in the Gallagher solar range are currently eligible for grant funding under the latest round of
the Countryside Productivity Small Grant scheme, subject to terms and conditions. Applications for funding must be submitted by September 3rd.

“If a business is seriously considering a Gallagher solar energiser, it makes excellent business sense to apply for grant aid to
reduce the total investment, giving outstanding flexibility and reliability for a reduced cost,” Mr Oliver concludes.
