Is there no electricity near the location you need your swing gate opener? Are you just looking for green energy? Then look no further than an automatic swing gate opener that can be powered through solar energy.
Solar Swing Gate Operators are available in a variety of residential and commercial openers. One should consider the idle current draw of a solar operator. This determines the size of the solar panel needed. The more efficient the control board, the smaller the solar panel needed, and the lower the overall cost of the system. Solar gate systems need efficient peripheral components as well. These components are low power loop detectors, and low power digital keypads. Solar panels and batteries for driveway gates should be sized accordingly to location. Sunny areas will require smaller panels. In areas with prolonged overcast periods, more battery storage capacity will should be purchased.
