The solar roof replacement golf cart top has been increased in power to 220 watts in April, 2014.
Protect the environment and save energy by converting your golf cart of solar power. The solar panel converts sunlight directly to electricity which charges the battery bank.
Thirty percent of the purchase price of the solar top can be used as a Federal tax credit. This immediately saves you $435 off of the purchase price. If you purchased a new battery bank at the same time, it would also be considered part of the solar system and would qualify for a 30% tax credit.
This solar roof panel kit and smart controller manufactured by Helios Solar Systems is the most efficient combination available, producing 30% more power to the golf cart than the closest competitor. Using photovoltaic panels it has three to fours times greater output than companies using thin film technologies. Depending on location, time of year, and driving on hilly or flat terrain, the 220 watt solar top will extend your driving time 4-12 miles per day. The customer may never have to plug in their golf cart! The 220 watt crystalline photovoltaic solar panel becomes the actual top of the golf cart and is connected to the battery bank via cables. It is great for golf carts on long, hilly golf courses, neighborhood electric vehicles in golf cart communities, maintenance workers' vehicles that are driven all day, and transport golf carts. It would be excellent on the Starter or Ranger's cart that is driven all day long.
Because the solar panel is the actual golf cart roof, it is readily apparent that this is a solar-powered electric hybrid vehicle.
By using solar power to operate the golf cart, the consumption of approximately 350 lbs of coal PER YEAR for electricity generation can be eliminated as well as the emission of 1,100 lbs of CO2 PER YEAR into the atmosphere (based on using the cart to its maximum potential of five sun-hours of peak sun).
