Imagine..... A Golf Cart With A Solar Powered Charging System That Charges Itself During Play or Work

Reducing your electricity costs while extending the useful life of the cart batteries, and while you enjoy the electricity savings and improved dependability, you will value the peace of mind and satisfaction of peppy golf carts that are continuously charged with the SGC ForeSolar solar charging system.

Cost and Benefits 

Depending on the area you live, the power company will charge based on kilowatt hours. For the purpose of this example, the calculated power cost is based on the state of North Carolina area (Duke Energy).

Energy Charge (Official Duke Energy page)

For the First 125 kWh per kW Billing Demand per Month: 

For the first 3,000 kWh per month, per kWh 11.6320 ¢ 

For the next 6,000 kWh per month, per kWh 7.0904 ¢ 

For all over 9,000 kWh per month, per kWh 7.1702 ¢ 

The average golf cart takes around 7,000w-9000w to fully charge from a low battery state. This means it costs around 70-90 cents to charge a golf cart from empty.

We have seen in our tests that our ForeSolar kit can add 8-10 miles per day on an average partly cloudy to sunny day. 

To give you an example, if each of your golf carts are driven an average of 20 miles per day we can cut the number of times you have to charge in half. This will save you 70-90 cents per day per golf cart not to mention greatly increase the driving range. What this means is $21-$27 of monthly savings per cart and a recoup in expenditures in just shy of 2 years in energy savings alone. This of course is not taking into account the added cost benefit of leaving the unused carts outside to charge and also the government subsidies of up to 30% in tax refunds.

This example is also in line with what we have seen in real world applications and with our test carts.

Battery Longevity Information

Our SGC ForeSolar Golf Cart kits greatly increase the battery longevity.

One of the worst things to do to a deep cycle battery is to fully discharge it as there is a direct correlation between depth of discharge of the battery and the number of charge and discharge cycles that can be performed. A battery should never go below 20 percent of its total charge and it is recommended to never discharge further than 50% to maximize the longevity. Our Solar kit solves this problem by continuously supplying the battery with power called a trickle charge.
 

The science lies in the sulfur found in battery acid which tends to have a settling effect overtime and becomes more solid as the battery is discharged. To keep the sulfur mixed with acid, the battery has to be recharged and remixed which overtime becomes less efficient thus reducing the battery’s charge capacity. A battery that is being charged continuously has a constant convection effect to keep the sulfur from separating from the acid and becoming a solid. This produces a longer battery life and maximizes the battery’s charge capacity. We have seen a battery longevity increase of up to 50% (2.5 years extra on a 5 year life span) in several real world tests.

Gas Powered Golf Cart Emissions:  In 2004 Princeton University reported on the possibility of reducing the amount of gas emissions from the University fleet.  A total of approximately 440 vehicles were examined, including 92 golf carts. The club carts on campus provided the largest amount of harmful emissions - carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and other gases. 

The study is detailed below:
Emission Rates
These calculations are based on averages for each cart. We estimated that each cart was used on average for 2.5 hours each week.
HC & NOx
2.5 hrs/wk x 52 wks/yr. x 10.5 hp x0.011 lb/hphr=15.015 lbs/yr x ton/2000lbs = 0.008 T/yr / cart x 90 carts ~ 0.7 tons / year NOx / Fleet
CO emissions:
2.5 hrs/wk x 52 wks/yr x 10.5 hp x 0.439 lbs/hphr = 599.235 lbs/yr x 1 ton/2000 lbs = 0.3 T/yr / Cart x 90 carts ~ 27 tons/yr CO
CO2 emissions:
2.5 hrs/wk x 52 wks/yr x 10.5 hp x 1.08 lbs/hphr = 1474.2 lbs/yr x 1 ton/2000 lbs = 0.7371 Tons/yr/cart x 90 carts = 66 Tons/yr Fleet
To put these numbers in context to other areas of high emissions on campus, the following is comparable data gathered from the Engineering department:

Power Plant: NOx = 79 Tons/yr. vs. Cart Fleet
CO = 92 Tons/yr.
CO2 = 90,000 Ton/yr.
Ford Taurus: NOx = 0.002 Tons/yr vs. Single Cart
CO = 0.032 Tons/yr.

CO2 = 2.21 Tons/yr
Taurus has more horsepower so naturally more CO2 emissions.
From data the Cart Fleet is surprisingly close to the power plant. The results:  Regarding the Ford Taurus, one cart = 4 Taurus’ in NOx emissions and 8 Taurus’ in CO emissions.    In other words;  A gas golf cart is 4 to 8 times more polluting than a Ford Taurus.


TAX BREAK 

You can get a Federal Income Tax Credit for buying solar on form 3468, line 2b.  Below is an example of the breakdown for that credit:

Solar Panel = $1000.00
Batteries =          600.00 (if applicable)
Total =             $1600.00


Total on line 2b of IRS Form 3468 is $1600.00 x 30% = $480.00.  Net only = $960.00
You may even get a tax break from installing and using this system*.  Please consult your tax professional.

Please use the following link for general insturctions and the 3468 form:

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3468.pdf

Arizona is a further 25% Tax Credit (form 310) off the total cost of installation for a combined Tax Credit of 55%. 

* *Laws and tax code change.  Please consult your tax professional before using this information as a basis for your purchase.

Warranty Period:

One year from date of purchase by the original owner, on all workmanship and parts.
