Business owners are constantly looking for ways to save money. The good news is you can shrink your energy bill by simply installing solar powered gates! Solar powered automatic gate installation is a huge cost-effective way to keep your employees safe and your bills lower. Commercial gates not only keep employees safe, but they also keep your property safe. If you already have a commercial gate, look into solar powered gates. If your business does not have a gate, but you are thinking about installing one, consider installing a solar powered gate.
Installing a solar powered gate in Orange County is a great idea because the sun is shining nearly every day of the year. However, if there is a rainy day, or a day when the sun is not shining, don’t fret. The gate will still operate because of the ‘off grid’ solar system. This system produces electricity from solar energy and stores it for when it is required, which means it can operate even when the sun is not shining. There are also ‘on grid’ systems. The ‘on grid’ system is linked in to the local power company. Any unused energy accumulated by a commercial or residential solar system will be routed back to the power company. Then, a credit value will be placed on this energy.
As you can see, solar powered gates in both commercial and residential properties are a great way to save money on electrical bills. If you want more information about ‘on grid’ and ‘off grid’ systems or help deciding which one would benefit you the most, please reach out to OC Gates. We have the knowledge and experience needed to offer you the best results at the best price in Orange County & Los Angeles.
Power surges can cause damage to electrical equipment. Whether it is from the summer heat, or booming thunderstorms, security gates can be damaged during these types of events. It is a good idea to know how to protect your gate opener from power surges.
Lightning or power surges can damage your security gate opener because the gate is similar to any other type of electrical equipment. Power from electrical storms can severely damage your gate to the point where it may be inoperable. In most cases, the power surge will blow out on of the gate operator’s circuit boards. Once the board gets a spike in electricity, it undergoes significant damage that causes it to stop working. To get the gate opener properly running again, the damaged circuit board must be replaced by an electrical professional.
In an instance where the electrical equipment has been damaged, some people will simply replace the circuit board.
