    A Gate Opener for Solar and Electric:

    LiftMaster automatic driveway gate opener systems can be powered by standard 120-volt electricity or easily upgraded to Solar Power that works independent of the utility power grid operating on free electricity harvested from the sun.

    when to go solar

    With 8 hours of direct sun daily, a Solar Powered Driveway Gate Opener is a smart investment.

    • Solar eliminates the expense of digging trenches and burying costly wire to supply electricity to the gate.
    • A Solar gate opener operates for free, powered by electricity harvested from the sun.
    • Solar will save you money!


    The federal government is offering financial incentives to homeowners for the use of solar powered systems at their home. Homeowners are able to apply for a federal tax credit equal to 22% off the installed cost of their LiftMaster® Solar Powered Gate Operator System. Get the details here:

    • What is Covered: The solar tax credit applies to the total installed cost of the solar gate operator system. This includes the related solar panel, opener, access control device, remote controls, entrapment protection device(s), etc.
    • What is Not Covered: The gate cost or work required to place the physical gate into proper working order (leveling the gate, replacing hinges, etc.)
