Common Uses

A solar powered electric fence energizer used to keep out deer, raccoons and rabbits from garden/orchard areas. It is also used to keep in poultry, cattle, sheep, goats, horses, and guard dogs. Effective at protecting against coyotes, stray dogs, bear and fox.



  • 1-1.0 joule energizer
  • 2-12 amp hour 12v sealed lead acid batteries
  • 1-Wiring harness
  • 1-10-watt solar panel
  • 1-Ground rod
  • 1-Metal carry case
  • If you buy the kit, it comes with all of the above plus a 5-light tester.


  • 1.3 stored joules
  • 1.0 released joules
  • 0.87 joules in moist soils
  • 0.35 joules in dry soils


  • Requires 3' of ground rod in the ground.
  • Draw from a 12v battery is 87 milliampere (mA) per hour. With this energizer a 12v 100 ampere hour, deep cycle battery will last approximately 28 days* on a clean or a weedy fence. *Assumes being drawn down to 40% between recharges.
  • 40 pulses per minute.
  • If properly used and or stored, battery should last 3-4 years.

Should Power...

  • 2 miles of 3 strand cattle fence.
  • 3/4 mile of 5-7 strand sheep fence.
  • 10 164' Sheep/Goat nets or 4-5 164' Poultry Nets
All distances are dependent of grass/weed load on the fence.


  • Assembled in house at Premier. We build each unit and test it before it goes out our door. This allows us to know that we are sending you a unit that works.
  • Lowest price for a powerful solar all-in-one 1.0 joule unit.
  • Can be laid flat on the ground during summer months to make them less visible to the public.
  • To catch the sun's power in winter, simply lean it against a post. If you live in low-sun areas, do this in the late fall and early winter also.
  • All metal case; very strong and rugged.
  • Won't rust. It's aluminum and stainless steel.
  • Light brown exterior reduces its visibility to vandals and reduces heat buildup inside the case.
  • All metal clamps for lid.

How to use

Attach the energizer unit to the battery and it is ready to use. Drive in the ground rod. Lay it on the ground or against a post. Then attach the earth clip to the ground rod and the fence clip to the fence. Switch it on (when switching on, make sure the button is pressed all the way in).

Winter Use

If you're not using your PRS unit during the winter follow these tips to preserve battery life:

  • Turn off the unit. Disconnecting the unit from the fence is not sufficient, the unit will still pulse unless it is turned off.
  • Clean off the solar panel. Dust and debris may have accumulated during use and as a result prevents the panel from maximum electrical production.
  • Before the unit goes into storage, fully charge the unit. This will allow the battery to be topped off. Batteries that are 50% or less charged may become damaged in freezing temperatures.
  • If possible, place the unit in a sunny area, this will allow the solar panel to continuously top-off the battery. The battery will lose charge over time even if the unit is disconnected from the fence and turned off.
  • If you're planning on using your PRS unit during the winter months, follow these helpful hints:

  • Face the energizer due South, this will allow the panel to receive the maximum amount of light possible during the low-light days of winter.
  • Instead of laying the unit on its back, stand up or prop up the unit (facing South) to allow it to receive as much light as possible.
  • Hang the unit up (facing South), secure the top and base to prevent the unit from moving. This will keep the unit out of most snow drifts and allow accumulated snow to fall off.
  • If the unit is not to be hung up, clear all debris off the panel, this includes grass clippings, dust (especially on gravel roads), leaves and snow. Do not place in shady areas, this will reduce light intake.
  • Precautions

    • Make sure the power is turned off before working on the fence or the energizer.
    • Premier is unable to repair broken Patriot Energizer Units.


    To determine if the fault is with the fence or the energizer...

    1. Test the energizer first
    2. Turn off energizer.
    3. Disconnect ground wire and the fence wire.
    4. Turn energizer back on.
    5. With fence tester, put the ground probe (or clamp) to the ground terminal on the energizer and the metal loop (or positive clamp) at the top of the tester to the fence/positive terminal. The reading you get tells you how well the energizer is working without any other variables. If there is a very low voltage (under 4000v) or no voltage, then the energizer may have a problem. If the voltage is high (greater than 4000v) then the trouble lies with your fence. Most energizers put out between 5000v and 8000v when there is no load (i.e. no fence hooked up).
    If the energizer is faulty and you are using the Patriot P10 as a battery unit you need to learn if the battery or the energizer is the problem…
    1. If it's a 12 volt energizer carry the unit to a nearby vehicle and attach the input cords carefully to the vehicle's battery.
    2. If the energizer now works, then your fencer's battery needs to be recharged or replaced.
    3. If the energizer does not work, then you should call Premier re. repairs.
    If the fence is at fault, then you must find the fault(s) and fix them. Here's how to start this process: If you have a Fault Finder you can simply touch the fence with the Fault Finder at various points along the electric fence(s). The Fault Finder will tell you at each point which direction to go in to locate the problem. Move in that direction testing as you go and you will arrive at the problem.
    If you lack a Fault Finder…

    1. Walk or drive along the fence looking for any point in which the energized wires touch the soil, a steel post or a steel wire. On HT wire fences, check the wires at braces to see if they are touching a hot wire. On netting, look for a hot wire touching the metal stake at the bottom of the plastic posts. Also look for damaged insulators.
    2. If the fence can be separated into several parts (by switches or by disconnecting parts of it), you can locate the problem by beginning at the far end and then progressively turn off or disconnect the sections of fence. When the voltage on the remaining fence rises sharply, you've located the section(s) that's causing the problems.
    3. The alternative to (2.) is to begin at the fencer and progressively turn on sections of the fence. When the voltage suddenly drops you can assume that the problem is in the section most recently connected.

    We use one on our East Farm to electrify the netting that subdivides one of our pastures. Both the sheep and guard dogs respect the charge it sends through the fence. If you experience low light in the winter months (like we do), the solar panel may not be able to charge the batteries as fast as they are depleted. The 100X is better adapted for low light areas.

    This is my first experience with a solar energizer and I absolutely love it. The case is very robust and the whole unit is well designed and laid out. Very easy to use and very effective so far. I am running 1 of the premier chicken nets and get 8000 volts most of the time. The dogs definitely respect it after one encounter.

    I love my solar PRS 100 energizers, I have two and just ordered a third. I have them hooked to several 48", 100' PermaNet rolls and have kept my chickens, sheep, goats, horses and cattle in line as well as the predators (that can't fly) out of the chickens and sheep. I currently have to fight the highway department's condemnation and decision to put a 4 lane divided highway through my farm where there was no roadway previously... so I am buying a third PRS100 and a couple more 100' 48" PermaNet rolls to have as a back up when some vehicle goes through part of the 1.5 miles of fencing they are imposing upon me. The ease of 1 person being able to move the charger (though the ground rods are often easier to put in than to pull out) & the portability and reliable charge of the netting makes me feel like I can still protect my animals from farm-crashers. I did have an issue with one of my charger's case wanting to zap me even when the ground rod was deeply sunk in good old moist Ky soil, ugh, I tell you this: it packs a punch! I understand why all my dogs avoid the net, only the tiny 3 legged dog failed to yelp out when it got him, the big ones hollered, went and hid for a while and now give the fence wide berth!!

    I had to purchase one of these in a hurry because our lambs were chewing on the netting as "energized" by the farm store energizer. It felt expensive to purchase but once installed, I've not once regretted it. We used it all winter successfully, and it's treated us well. Good equipment that just works buys peace of mind, and the inferior chargers aren't that much less money after all. Having it on the ground wasn't my first choice, but it hasn't been as much of a problem as I feared. We're buying a second one.

    I now operate two of these for my sheep on our permanent fence and paddock subdivisions. I have found that I can energize much more 5 & 4 wire fences than Premier says is possible. These are excellent energizers and I would highly recommend one. My only trouble with them is that at 46° latitude, even tilted, the panel does not charge the batteries after mid-September. My solution has been to use a back-up set of batteries which are rotated to a 12volt trickle charger every other day.

    We have two of these, very happy on the whole, though do be careful with placement if using sheep/goats to clean up fence-lines in the fall/winter. We have found need to have energizer out of shade for at least 50% of daylight to maintain adequate charge through the night. ie read the instructions!

    Great charger, love the carrying case. Only negative so far is the 5 light tester that comes with the kit. The 3000V bulb was burnt out and the only remedy was to mail it back. But, with the cost of shipping vs the cost of the tester, it didn't make sense. So as long as my fences are 4000V plus, it'll be ok.

    Love this charger. Had it for several months now and It works great, even after a week of cloudy weather. Nothing ground based gets through this, and we have every type of predator you can think of short of Lions, Tigers, and bears.

    I have now had this product in the field for its 3rd season. It has worked as advertised even though I frankly have abused it by leaving it in my field through all sorts of weather for those 3 seasons (and left it on for those 3 seasons.) I just recently replaced the batteries and a hinge that siezed up, but once doing those repairs it is back in use on one of my two 48" poultry nets protecting a batch of 75 chickens and their chicken tractor. I have only had one animal defeat this product and the poultry net and this was a mink (he now sits on my manlte.) All other predators have not harmed (those predators Red Foxes, Coyotes, Wild dogs, Racoons, Possums, Skunks, and Feral Cats) any of the 600+ chickens I have raised since purchasing my 2 poultry nets and this solar charger. I have killed 6 Coyotes since purchasing this equipment in that time frame all with 300 yds of my property, so I know the net and charger are working. The only other predator not affected by the product are the hawks and owls which I have to use other methods to defend against. I highly recommend this product and the poultry nets as a base defense for protecting your poultry against four legged predators.

    Love this setup! We purchased it for the rugged box and all in one convenience and it is amazing. We have 450 feet of woven fencing on it and everything that touches the fence leaps away, the dogs, the cats, the sheep, everybody. I usually touch the fence myself but after watching the animal's responses I have not subjected myself to this charger! Great product.

    An impressive energizer that consistently exceeded the 8k voltage reading on my tester. I would highly recommend this, but would suggest that users in more northern latitudes (I'm in Central MN) have a backup battery set for it. The panel is not sufficient enough to fully charge the batteries later in the season, even if you tilt the case for more direct sunlight.

    This fence energizer has made moving our netting so much easier!!! It's powerful and consistent, and so easy to use. I like it so much I'm buying another for my permanent ram pen. The sotrage box is rugged and makes it so easy to keep everything together, no searching for cords or clips, or the tester. The sheep definitely have great respect for the fence, and it gives us peace of mind. Very happy with it.

    I've been really happy with this setup. We already had the Patriot P10 energize and Premier was more than happy to sell us the solar set up minus the energizer at a reduced price. We've used this to reinforce an old barbed wire fence and also to power a two strand temporary fence for sheep, cattle and horses. It's been very reliable at at restricting the livestock, despite our VERY dry desert soil. Plus, set up couldn't be easier.

    We bought this charger after spending way too much money for a piece of junk solar/battery combo from a local farm store. We could touch the electro net and barely feel the charge. Hooked up this unit and BAM, about knocked my husband off his feet! Charging 6 100' sections of electro fence with it now, works great, plan to order more fence sections today! Our sheep don't even think about testing this fence, thanks Premere!

    I bought this energizer to power two sections of 48 inch poultry netting. Although our current drought has limited my ability to evalute its operation under "normal" conditions, after one month of use I am happy with the quality and performance of the energizer. Suggestion: one thing the drought has taught me is the importance on installing additional ground rods. I received one 3-foot rod with the energizer and purchased an additional 6-foot rod locally that I cut into two 3-foot rods - my system consists of three 3-foot ground rods spaced about 15 feet apart with one located in a spot kept moist by my drip irrigation system. Seems to work OK. Finally: product delivery and support from Premier has been great. Everything was delivered rapidly and all my questions answered quicky via email.

    So far this has been an excellent energizer. I'm currently using it with 4 rolls of ElectroNet to graze sheep in road ditches at at the end of fields where a permanent fence isn't an option. It has been working great, the sheep respect it, and when my dog touched the fence she went howling the other way and sat in her doghouse the rest of the night.

    So far I like this energizer setup, which I have paired with Premier's poultry netting for my Freedom Ranger broilers. However, one improvement would be to offer a ground rod with a built on post-pounder, like Kencove offers. I bought one from Kencove, and it makes setting this up much easier. Now, I don't have to carry around a big sledge hammer to pound in the ground rod or remove it. Otherwise, fencer seems to do the job, and seems to offer a better value for the money than other solar energizers.
    One last issue. I don't like the ordering process where I have to login to order. Also, if you add items to your shopping cart, and then go to another part of the website it is difficult to figure out how to get back to the shopping cart. This should be as simple as possible. I had to call to get help navigating the website.

    I'm new to electric fencing so opted for this kit. I'm not disappointed. My sheep have learned to respect it - but I advise that you set up a "training fence" because on first day some sheep went right through 3 strands of IntelliTwine. They no longer do! The carry case is compact and convenient. I'm measuring 3000V on a 3-strand fence excluding an approx 2/3 acre area from the pasture.

    The Solar Energizer is a very versatile product. It stands up to the elements very well, and provides me with a strong feeling of confidence that my flock will be secure when I'm not in the field. So far my birds have not suffered any casualties. The only area of improvement that the energizer needs is stronger cables.

    Very happy with this. Easy to check the battery's charge level with a multitester when the case is open. Nice having the panel as part of the case. Would like an external connector to add another 12v battery when the sun doesn't shine for a week and the two internal batteries go dead. I had to buy another charger and hijack my RV battery when we had a long cloudy stretch. One minor gripe, the weatherstripping has pulled away and become unglued on the hinge side of the case, leaving a long gap in the seal. This makes it a nice place for spiders to hole up. And I hate spiders. :)
