Golf Cart Solar Roof Panel Kits - photo gallery and testimonials


Palm Island Resort, Cape Haze, Florida, December, 2015

The Palm Island Resort does not allow personal cars in the complex. They have a large fleet of golf carts for staff and guest use and an inadequate number of charging stations. They first purchased a 105 roof top mounted solar panel kit which is on  their head of maintenance's cart.  He says it is in constant use, is not plugged it in more than once or twice a week, and he is very happy with the performance.  In December, 2015, they began to convert their golf cart fleet of Club Car Precedents to the 235 watt roof replacement kits. They had received concerns from guests whose cart ran out of power and had to be towed in. Now, they no longer plug in the carts with the 235 watt roof. Further, the solar roofs have a sleek look and appeal to the environmentally conscious Resort.

Below is a picture of part of the 235 watt fleet.

Detroit Zoo

at the giraffe habitat and one of Gloria Copeland at the gorilla habitat

 


 

Patricia Mills Janeway, Communications Director, Detroit Zoological Society:  "The solar panels appear to be working as promised. 
Mike Nevala and other employees have noted that the carts seem to remain sufficiently charged for our daily normal use, which
is usually light to moderate without the need to plug them in.  Based on what we have seen so far, we believe it would be possible
to rely on solar charging for at least 60% of our normal golf cart use, only wall charging during periods of exceptionally
heavy use."  June, 2009.
