While ambulances, and even some private vehicles, have benefited from having solar panels fitted to their roofs, they aren’t the only models that can do that. The newest development in solar panels is that today, even your golf carts can run in one too.
An Ontario-based company named Unconquered Sun has begun manufacturing these golf carts, and if the solar panel trend continues the way it has been going then it may not be long before you see these models in your local golf courses. An obvious benefit to having these solar powered gold buggies around is that they can help reduce water and chemical consumption, not to mention support environment-friendly products and movements.
Unconquered Sun claims that with their latest offering, owners of these golf buggies can save considerably on costs. To cite an example, a fleet comprised of about 80 buggies can save about 50% to 75% on electricity costs. Other benefits that come with the utilisation of these buggies is the lessening of air pollution. On an operational level, these buggies are worth getting because their location can be easily monitored at all times.
It’s very easy to explain these solar panel roofs; not only do they serve as the roofs to the golf buggies but they also provide the power to the whole vehicle. It was found that when the buggies were used all throughout the day, the solar panels were able to provide about seven amps in energy, except when the golf cart was moving.
There are plenty of other features that come with these solar-panelled golf carts, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, besides the already mentioned monitoring system. All of these features become extremely useful when staff is trying to figure out where the carts are, or how fast they are being driven or even the amount of charge left in them. A backup feature that comes with these carts is the electrical charge system, in the event that there is not enough sunlight to keep them powered.
