The solar panel is completely weatherproof and virtually indestructible. GateCrafters.com's non-glass solar panels feature a clear front covering and are mounted to an anodized aluminum frame. The heart of the solar panel is the collection of solar cells, which optimizes the amount of energy absorbed even in low light situations. Each cell transforms the sunlight into energy through a photovoltaic process (converting photons into electrons). Working as a cohesive unit these cells can generate electricity that will work with solar compatible gate opener systems. As a rule of thumb; heavier gates and/or more frequent cycles (a cycle is defined as one open and closure) the more solar wattage you’ll need. Review your gate opener manual for information on which panel would best suit your needs.
*Make and model may vary from picture above.
Optimum Orientation for Solar Panels: (Your Latitude x 0.9) + 29 Degrees= # of degrees your panel should be angled towards true South from the horizontal position (laying flat pointing directly up)
