Solar Powered Golf Carts

I saw a segment on ABC’s Good Morning America yesterday talking about solar powered golf carts.  Solar powered carts have a battery life that can last 30-35% longer than a standard electric charge.  The panels are produced by a company called Solar Drive and their website is www.SolarDrive.com.  Sebonack Golf Club in Southhampton, N.Y is the first golf club to power it’s entire golf cart fleet with Solar Drive’s solar panel roofing system.  You can order the panel system to install on your own golf cart and they can also be installed by the golf cart company when you order it from the factory.  Note: the 30% Federal tax credit is also available for this system, so with the tax credit and all of the energy savings, the payoff should be pretty fast, especially if you have 50-100 golf carts that have to charge up each night.

Happy Golfing!

    In addition to Sebonack Golf Club in Southhampton, NY, the Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course in Hong Kong became the first club in the world to outfit its entire fleet of golf carts with Solar tops. Both claim an annual savings of over $50,000.00 US by going Solar. Hawaii Prince Golf course is on the band wagon as well. They just purchased 10 solar golf cart systems for their fleet. This is definitely a trend that should be watched. I am a dealer for a unique Peel and Stick Solar Golf Cart System that works on ANY golf cart. Custom Cart, Specialized Cart, EZ-GO, Club Car, Yamaha, etc. If you would like more information, please feel free to contact me.

    to date, solar panels which generate more than 100Watts are still expensive but hopefully they are getting cheaper each day ~
