Universal Solar Panel, 100-420 watts, For All Golf Carts
This solar roof panel kit is a powerful Universal golf cart solar roof top kit available with a 100 watt solar panel. It works well with golf carts driven about 6 miles or less per day in peak sun. As a rule of thumb, for every hour the golf cart is out in the sun, it will drive one mile further. An eco-friendly solar electric hybrid vehicle.
New. We are now offering the universal roof top mounted in the higher wattages of 210 watts and 280 watts. The 210 watt roof is 66" long and requires an extended top length of 80". The 280 watt roof is 84" in length and requires an extended top for a 6 passenger vehicle. Please see these options below. A further option is the 420 watt kit which is 140" x 45" x 3" and weighs 130 lbs.
Below us a picture of a 6 passenger Star Car with the top mounted 210 watt panel. The Star Car has a dome roof that requries extra long brackets. There is an extra charge of $300 for these brackets. Please call Customer Service if you have a Star Car and want a top mounted solar kit.

"Attached are a couple of pix's (see our solar photo gallery) and some information on our new Yamaha Drive 48 volt
electric golf cart we used in a pilot program to test out the advantages
of a solar panel to help maintain the charge. This cart is used by our
(City of Fort Collins, CO) yard crew that maintains the grounds at our Drake Water Reclamation
Facility. We installed your Universal 100 watt solar panel on 6/13/12
with a full charge on the batteries. The yard crew was instructed not to
plug the charger in until the cart would not move anymore due to low
battery. So the next dates it had to be plugged in are 6/25/12, 3 times
in July, 3 times in August, 1 once in September, 1 once in October and
11/13/12 to present. We have three more of these carts that the
Operations Dept. uses that are not equipped with any solar panels and
they are plugged into chargers at the end of every day. Communicating
this data to management they see this pilot program as a success and
therefore would like to equip the other carts as well. (They ordered three more HSC 10 solar panel kits on 11/15/12.)
"I have been very happy with the HSC 270 solar kit that I bought last year for my Club Car Hunt VE. I run it every day on my 3,000 acre farm. I used to get stranded with low power, but no longer. It works especially well in the summer. So, here is my second order for a HSC 210 solar panel kit for my newly purchased Stealth." Michael M., Hattiesburg, MS, June 2012.
"The 205 watt solar panel recharges the batteries on our Yamaha Drive in a couple of hours on a partly sunny day, less time during the bright sun." Joe H., Marietta, GA., June 2012. (This customer has now ordered a second HSC 205 for another Yamaha Drive.)
"I teach the electric vehicle and the solar classes at the College of Marin, Ca. We bought a 205 watt panel for our golf cart in 2010 to go back and forth between classroom buildings. For two years from March to October we have not plugged the cart in at all. It is great. The new college President loves the solar cart so much that he now wants one of his own. We will be ordering a 270 watt panel for a 4 passenger golf cart." Mark B. Marin Co., CA, April, 2012.
"I am very pleased with the 205 watt solar roof replacement on my E-Z-GO TXT 36 volt golf cart. We installed it on December 15, 2010 and have not plugged the golf cart in since. It was very easy to install. It certainly is attracting the attention of my neighbors and friends. We are going to order more." David Stradtman, Brunswick, GA, August, 2011.
"I am sorry it has been so long to get back to you on the performance of my golf cart solar roof (HSC 205 on an E-Z-GO Med/TXT). We put the solar panel on in late March. When we put it on my battery health on my cart was about 3/4 full strength. After playing 18 holes the solar charger continued to work until my battery health was back to 3/4 full strength. This told me that when you plug in the solar panel it takes a look at the battery strength and maintains that level whether it be 48 volts, 36 volts or 26 volts or any other voltages within its capacity. I unplugged the solar charger and plugged in my regular 36 volt charger in my personally owned cart stall. After the charge reached 36 volts my regular charger shut off automatically. I then plugged the Helios Solar Charger back in so it could see my batteries at full strength. The solar charger has always returned my batteries to full strength within a reasonable period of time. I have not used my cart stall to recharge my batteries since in late March. In fact I have rented out my cart stall and if I live long enough the solar charger will have been no expense at all. I have piqued a lot of interest here at Seven Lakes but know of no one who has purchased a solar charger yet. I am sure to mention your company to anyone who talks to me about the solar roof. I am totally satisfied with the product." Jack Comp, Fort Myers, FL, May, 2011. (See his initial reaction to the installation below.)
An update from Jack Comp, January, 2012. "Linda, I installed my solar top in March, 2011. I have not had to use my charger since. I am very happy with the performance of the solar top.""We installed the HSC 130 solar kit on the (Key West High School) football coach's cart. It is really working great, and we have not had to plug it in. We are not going to replace our $400 cart electric charger. The solar panel kit has exceeded all my expectations. So, here is our solar kit second order for my golf cart." Josh Clearman, Key West High School, May, 2011.
"The HSC 205 roof arrived yesterday, and somewhere between 30 and 40 minutes later it was mounted and ready to go. An hour later I was at the pro shop in line to tee off. There were many curious lookers, and I assured the ladies that I spent a lot more on Carol's new carpet than I did on the solar charger. A couple of ladies said they sure hope their husbands didn't see this." Jack Comp, Ft Myers, FL, March, 2011.
"I was very skeptical about solar power just from rumors I had heard. I wanted to put one to real world tests so I could see with my own eyes the way it worked. We received the top (HSC 205) in on a Thursday and were set to install the next day. The cart we used was one of my 2006 E-Z-GO PDS rental carts. The cart was just back from a rental and was completely dead. We had to tow the cart up to our service area. The installation was very quick and easy and inside an hour the cart emerged from service with it's new solar roof. It was near the end of the day so it was just pushed down and out of the shop and parked outside. When we arrived in on Monday I went straight to the cart to check it out. When I sat down inside it and looked up at the built in meter it showed a FULL CHARGE!! How cool was that! Just from sitting outside the dead cart on Friday was now the fully charged cart ready to drive away! In my business if I had 40 rental carts going out on a regular basis this has the potential of HUGE SAVINGS in recharges.
the cart in our fleet for a few months now and STILL haven't charged
it! It's great to be able just park the cart and forget it until the
next rental." Dave Broker, Store Manager, Fairway Golf Cars LLC, Palm Harbor, FL, September, 2010.
"The HSC 130 powered golf cart has not been plugged in since we received it. We are pleased to do business with you. And, here is our second order." Randy Stitt, Woodward Academy, College Park, GA, July, 2010.
"The SG 120 is awesome and works great! I have driven the golf cart almost every day and haven't plugged it in in a month. I'm ordering an inverter so that I can also plug a refrigerator to the golf cart in case of an emergency. The installation was a piece of cake. It was much easier than the light kit that I also installed. The installation instructions are excellent." Dave Scott, Cashmere, Washington, August, 2009."The SG 120 is a great product. It went on very easily, and we were out driving the same day." Dave Smith, Vineyard Haven, MA, August, 2009.
"The solar SG 187 and SG 120's are working perfectly. They look very good. The installation instructions were simple and easy to follow. After two weeks of daily use, we have not had to plug them in!" Charlie Mills, East Los Angeles College, May, 2009."The solar SG 187 installation on our Par Car went very smoothly. Although we have tested it only a few days, the battery is keeping its charge." Mark Harrah, Georgia Tech University, June, 2009.
"The solar panels appear to be working as promised. 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." Patricia Mills Janeway, Communication Director, Detroit Zoological Society, June, 2009. Click here for a picture of one of their fleet of 40 solar equiped golf carts.
