The Solar Powered Golf Cart

solar golf cart

The Solar Powered Golf Cart.

This is the electric golf cart that has an array of 72 photovoltaic cells built into the roof that collect solar energy, providing up to 33% more range between recharges than non-solar electric golf carts. The cart’s 160-watt array produces up to three amps per hour for its 48-volt rechargeable battery system, providing a range of up to 49 miles–approximately 10 rounds of golf–before requiring a full recharge (overnight via its 6′ long AC adapter; 15 hours via its solar array). The array also extends the life of the battery system by 60% more than other electric golf carts. Its 5 1/2-hp electric motor and 19-spline rear axle provides a maximum speed of 24 MPH and is powerful enough to enable the cart to climb a 28° incline when fully loaded with two passengers and golf bags, supporting up to 755 lbs. The cart uses rack and pinion steering, leaf springs, and heavy shock suspension to provide a smooth, even ride on its rugged 8″ pneumatic tires. A built-in speed controller allows you to limit the maximum speed, and its self-adjusting drum brakes provide reliable stopping. Includes a two-person seat with vinyl upholstery, four cup holders, and straps for securing two golf bags. The cart has headlights, turn indicators, brake lights, and a horn. 7 3/4′ L x 3 3/4′ W x 5 3/4′ H (1,100 lbs.)

Solar Powered Security Light

solar light

Is the entrance or area around your home dark or badly lit? Do you struggle to find your keys in the evening? Perhaps you would feel safer when you come home late at night or when you go to the garage or take the rubbish out if you had a security light to lead the way? Or maybe you have an external garage that isn’t wired up to electricity but you have always wanted an external light?

Whether it’s a welcoming light for guests, a security light for you or a practical light to lead the way and help you find your keys, our Solar Sensor Light delivers a fantastic solution.

The infrared sensor has a 100 degree detection angle, an 8 metre lighting distance and a 60 second illumination period. And when fully charged emits a super bright LED light, which has almost the same power as that of a 60W standard light bulb! Order yours today!

Mobile MaxPure with Fresh Water Purification System

max pure silo

This Mobile MaxPure® (MMP) is a solar-powered generator with a built-in system for the purification of polluted freshwater sources. This system can pump and purify an average of 30,000 gallons each day at a cost of less than one penny per gallon! This calculation includes capital costs and all consumables over the course of the first year. After year 1 the cost reduces to fractions of a penny per gallon because the capital outlay has been paid off.

The unit also provides power to run lights, tools, equipment and sensitive computers and other electronic equipment. Inverter systems for use with US or European specifications are available. You can also purchase the optional satellite communication system and/or the specially designed trailer to easily pull the unit to your site.

The MMP fits easily into standard international shipping containers; 4 fit into a standard 40-foot container. There are lift points built on to the sturdy frame to airlift the unit by helicopter. It can also be transported by truck or boat.

The units have provided water and power under severe conditions. Please see our Project Briefs for more information. The MMP is powder coated to reduce rust and all components are marine grade and sealed against the elements. Please see below for more specifications.
