If you have animals that require electric fencing to contain them, use solar powered fencing units to provide power for them. A great advantage to these systems is that they are completely mobile, and can be easily moved. If you are a horse owner who enjoys overnight horse-camping, the fencer can be easily taken along.
Following on from our ‘how it works’ presentation; this 7 minute video shows the economics of a 3kW solar + 7kWh Tesla battery in Australia.
When looking for a solar panel system, try to find discounts. So while theses initial costs are intimidating, know that there is help available. Verify whether state or federal rebates and grants are available to assist you. This reduces the costs greatly. You can even get some deductions at tax time.
For better savings on your utility bill, keep your solar panels clean. Solar panels are practically silent and since you don't touch them, you can easily forget them. The cleaner their glass panels are, the more clear surface area the sun has to "work with." There's no set amount of time that you should clean them. If you live in an area with lots of wind, dust or construction, they may need cleaned frequently. Some ares may require weekly cleanings.
