When properly designed and installed, solar power fencing is the least expensive, safest, and most secure method for securing properties and lives when compared to walls, other types of fences, human guards, and watchdogs. The fence does NOT sleep. The fence CANNOT be bribed. The fence does NOT require food or water. Well-designed solar power fencing has more deterrence value than a guard with a sawed off shotgun or a snarling pit bull.
If you have security guards, you can pay for and justify the fence by reducing at least half of your guard force and still maintain a much higher security level. The remaining guards can respond quickly before an intruder even enters onto the property. You will find that a solar electric fence is the best security investment that you have ever made.
Solar power fencing is designed to keep out predators, thieves, trespassers, vandals and disease. If you also employ security guards, they will complement the security that is provided by a well-designed high voltage solar electric fence.
A solar power fencing design to keep livestock penned in (or out) is no different. A simple wire or tape around the pasture or livestock enclosure is only done for a temporary enclosure. A more permanent enclosure requires the same design considerations as you would for security. Security for your expensive livestock should be a prime consideration.
Solar power fencing is designed to protect property, livestock, production, manufacturing, and lives. Every situation is different, but there are also some considerations that are the same, no matter who, what, or where. The components of the system shall be installed and mounted inside a metallic enclosure and very near to the fence and LOCKED out of reach from unauthorized people.
We recommend that you check your fence at least once a week. Plant foliage or branches or fronds lying across the fence wire might not reduce the voltage on the meter when dry, but foliage becomes a conductor when wet and might easily short out your system completely reducing the fence voltage to almost zero
