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.
