Solar E-Z-GO TXT Golf Cart
The solar golf cart uses the powerful HSC 205 solar roof top or can be upgraded to a 270 watt system. Combined with a smart Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controller, the solar golf cart drives 6 to 10 more miles a day than the normal electricity powered battery golf cart (or more in sunny areas of the southern United States). As a rule of thumb, for every 45 minutes the solar golf cart sits out in peak sun, it will go an extra mile. Using the upgraded 270 watt panel, for every 30 minutes you are out in the sun, the cart will go an additional mile. Therefore, using solar power, you may never have the plug the cart in!
Further, using solar power rather than fossil fuel power on the golf cart reduces the CO2 released into the air by 452 pounds per year. The ongoing carbon foot print for the cart is greatly reduced or eliminated because you are no longer draining from the electrical grid.
Solar power keeps the batteries in a state of constant charge rather than discharge when the cart is outside. This prevents the sulfates from building up and extends the life of the battery bank by a minimum of 25%.
The E-Z-GO TXT is one of the most popular golf carts available, used on thousands of golf courses. It is a relatively maintenance free golf cart. Both the golf cart and the solar panels are made in the USA. You can rely on the quality of this solar golf cart!
The golf cart comes with the solar top, new batteries, new wheels and tires, new rear bumper, new floor mat, new driver and passenger rocker panels, new fold down windshield, new factory style head lights, tail lights, reupholstered seats in tan or oyster, sanded and freshly painted sweater basket, and golf bag rack. An upgraded accessory package is available adding retractable seat belts, turn signals, brake lights, horn, and side or center mirrors. Also, we offer an upgraded windshield to meet Department of Transportation DOT standards.
The solar electric hybrid golf cart can be converted to a four passenger vehicle by adding a fold down rear seat kit.
As of January 1, 2006, an investment tax credit for utilizing solar went into effect. IRS form 3468 (http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3468.pdf) allows a 30% tax credit for investing in solar. You may deduct 30% of the retail value of the 205 solar panel (retail $1,995) and receive a tax credit of $599. This credit was extended on October 3, 2008 for 8 more years. Further, some states give incentives for buying solar. In Florida, for example, the solar portion of the vehicle is exempt from state sales tax.
