Solar-Powered Gate Provides After-Hours Access

July 1, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

green energy manageGreen Gate Access Systems installed a solar-powered gate at waste management company, Agrivert in Surrey, UK. Some Agrivert employees need access to the site after hours, when the gates are locked for security purposes.

The solar-powered double gate automation features a 6-way GSM intercom, key code and daily open timer. With solar panels designed to operate the gate up to 100 times per day (even mid-winter), the solar, combined with the GSM intercom allows the gate automation full capability of operating at this busy, high-security site, without any power.

Agrivert converts food waste from London restaurants and businesses in an anaerobic digester, which is converted into methane and then electricity.
