Solar fence for companies and municipalities
Fence with dual applications
Fences are often vital on commercial and industrial property – with the bifacial solar fence from Next2Sun, they can become a source of power or cover your own power requirements. A solar fence can play a key role in generating the energy you need and can increase self-sufficiency from external suppliers. There are various design options for solar fences: as well as being an enclosure and offering protection against intruders, a fence can also provide privacy or serve as a high-end decorative element. It can also further enhance an attractive property and add innovation and sustainability.

What does the solar fence cost?
Enter the characteristics of your plot to calculate the potential power, possible annual electricity yield, and rough budget for your solar fence!
For the yield and cost estimate, we need to know the total length of the planned fence/enclosure using the solar fence, as well as the number of corners or corner elements, if any.

Thoughts on solar fences
As it currently stands, just 13.2 percent of the currently installed system output from renewable energies is owned by business operators. Germany and Austria have around 3.5 million companies, whose energy requirements represent huge potential for expanding decentralised power generation via photovoltaics.
Are you perhaps thinking about building a new fence and researching the right approach? Consider going for a solar fence: in fact, this is just a photovoltaic system with solar modules that is simply installed on a fence rather than on a rooftop.
