Solar fence for private users

Become independent

Energy self-sufficiency with solar power

The Next2Sun solar fence can do more than simply generate enough power to cover a single-family household – it also serves as a low-maintenance weather-resistant replacement for hedges and fences. The premium bifacial solar fence is very versatile and can for example be used as a boundary enclosure, site divider or partition, privacy screen, or even decoration. The solar fence offers innovation and sustainable power generation as well as a very appealing, solid visual design.

Satisfied solar fence users

I spent a long time looking for an alternative way to generate power. The solar fence provides shade and a protected outdoor area for my organic chickens, and also produces power for my farm and my tavern all year round.

Herbert Rohrmoser
Organic farmer and restaurant owner from St. Martin bei Lofer

Next2Sun’s innovation has made us even more independent. We wanted an alternative to a living fence that still provided privacy. The 65 metres of solar fence on our property now produce electricity, even in winter. A truly worthwhile investment!

Hermann Bernhofer
Management consultant and solar fence owner from Adnet

The solar fence is a good addition to existing solar concepts and perhaps also a good replacement for the neighbourhood-repelling plastic fences that are currently in fashion!
