The heart of the electric fence system is the energizer. So choose the right electric fence energizer is the most important part.


First thing you need to consider is the power source. Whether it is accessible to the Main power 110V, 220V or remote areas and is it permanent electric fencing or portable electric fence? There are basically three types of power supply for the electric fence energizers

  • Powerful, useful for long haired animals, fences with strong vegetation and long fences

3. Solar Electric Fence Energizer
