Solar powered gate openers are growing in popularity for many reasons. Most commonly, they provide power to locations where electricity is not available and provide monetary savings by drawing energy from natural sunlight.
The question is... Should you buy a solar powered gate opener for your gate? Our answer would depend on if you need it or not. If you're trying to power a gate that is currently far away from a power source, a solar powered system is a great option that will prevent you from going through the hassle of running power all the way to your gate. Most standard-sized gates that are only opened a few times each day are good candidates for solor automation.
We most commonly install solar entry systems for farm gates and driveway gates that are a few hundred yards or more from a power source. Don't have much sunlight close to the gate? No problem! We can install your solar panels over 100 yards away from the actual gate. If you're still not sure if a solar powered entry system is right for your gate, give us a call to schedule an appointment with one of our driveway gate specialists. We would be more than happy to come to your property or commercial project and help you determine what automatic gate operator and power system would be best for you. We look forward to hearing from you!
