Solar Panel as the Golf Cart Top, 250 watts
In June, 2012, we increased the wattage of our golf cart solar roof replacement kit to 210 watts without any price increase. In April, 2014, we dropped the price for this popular solar charger kit for the third time in three years and increased the wattage to 220 watts. The full roof replacement kit is now $1,450. In November, 2015, we increased the wattage to 235 watts and in May, 2018, the wattage was increased once again to 250 watts. The dimensions and price remain the same.
Protect the environment by converting your golf cart to solar power. The solar panel converts sunlight directly to electricity which charges the golf cart's 36 or 48 volt battery bank. Don't plug your golf cart in again!!
Thirty percent of the solar roof purchase price and installation costs can be used as a Federal tax credit. This immediately saves you $435 off of the purchase price of the 250 watt panel kit. If you purchased a new battery bank at the same time, it would also be considered part of the golf cart solar system and would also qualify for the 30% tax credit. In December 2015, Congress extended the the solar tax credit for 5 more years, through 2021.
This golf cart solar roof panel kit and smart controller, manufactured by Solar Electric Vehicle Systems, is the most efficient combination available, producing 30% more power to the golf cart than the closest competitor using photovoltaic panels and three to four times greater output than companies using thin film technologies. Depending on location, time of year, and driving conditions, the 250 watt top will extend your driving time 4-12 miles per day. The rule of thumb is that for every 45 minutes the 250 watt solar golf cart sits out in peak sun, it will go an extra mile. You may never have to plug in your golf cart! The 250 watt crystalline photovoltaic solar panel becomes the actual top of the golf cart and is connected to the battery bank via cables and a smart controller. It is great for golf carts on long, hilly golf courses, neighborhood electric vehicles in golf cart communities, maintenance workers' vehicles that are driven all day, and transport golf carts.
The solar powered golf cart is well suited for locations that do not have easy access to electricity such as campgrounds, farms, hunting areas, and on islands.
Show off your solar powered golf cart. Because the solar panel is the actual golf cart roof, it is readily apparent that this is a solar powered electric hybrid vehicle.
By using solar power to operate your golf cart, you can eliminate the consumption of approximately 350 lbs of coal PER YEAR for electricity generation and eliminate the emission of 1,100 lbs of CO2 PER YEAR into the atmosphere (based on using the golf cart to its maximum potential of 5 sun-hours of peak sun).
The golf cart solar panel charging kit is designed by researchers from the University of Florida and is manufactured in the USA. We are committed to push the envelope of technology and provide cost effective, practical, and sustainable solutions in solar-powered transportation.

If you are interested in a more powerful solar system, please call Customer Service, 727-487-6615. Solar kits of 285 watts and 440 watts are also available for larger golf carts. Special mounting is required for these bigger and heavier panels.
See below for a universal solar panel kit mounted to the existing top of a golf carts generating 105 watts of solar power.
Because the tops are big and bulky, they are shipped truck freight. These trucks do not go into residential areas. Therefore, we request that you provide a business, work, or commercial address in the Ship to area.
