Solar Powered Golf Cart

solar 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.

and once you have finished with it at one location you simply move it to the

Our solar and wind powered Eco-Freindly cameras will operate up to 800
metres from the nearest wireless access point Internet connection without
boosters and with boosters the range can be continually extended.

How They Work

Our solar and wind powered cameras work by using renewable resources to
power the cameras directly and also charge its system battery for contnued
use when the power source may not be available for a time e.g. when the
sun sets.

Solar powered cameras use large high grade solar panels to provide power
and charge the batteries and wind powered cameras use an efficient 5 blade
wind turbine toperform the same task.

By using a combination of solar and wind you really get the best from the
natural resources to charge and run the camera system. As either mode
(solar or wind power) can fully charge the batteries under normal conditions,
by using both methods you are virtually guaranteed continued reliable
operation under all weather conditions. Depending on battery capacity
selected, you would need a very prolonged period (days) of total darkness
with no wind before the solar and wind powered camera would cease to
