Solar Project Fencing Options

In addition to often being a requirement of code enforcement, fencing prevents damage to solar panel units, as well as other necessary items and structures on the property.

Additionally, wildlife is bound to walk in and around the solar installation and can damage panels. A fence discourages entry, which ensures the safety of any animals (and people) around and protects the equipment.

ReVision Energy installs two types of fencing around large ground-mounted solar projects—chain link and agricultural. 

Chain Link Fence

The wires run vertically and are bent into a zig-zag pattern so that each hooks with the wire immediately on one side and each with the wire immediately on the other. This forms the characteristic diamond pattern seen in this type of fence.

Agricultural Fence

Agricultural style fences blend more aesthetically with rural environments compared to chain-link fence. High-tensile wires used in agricultural fencing are lighter and stronger than chain link.
