A trick to tape learned from strapping flatbed loads. Twist the tape a couple of times between posts. The wind doesn't flap the tape and beat it apart.

We've had good results with Parmak, both solar and line powered. Go with line power if you possibly can.
Even if you're buying another brand, download and print out this manual: http://parmakusa.com/download/Parmak...et_English.pdf

About the electricity source -
If you just have an electric company pole that holds wires there, you need to have a service installed. Must be done by an electrician, inspected, approved - not cheap.
If you already have service, and electrician can install an exterior receptacle for your charger. You still need a protected place in which to install it.
