Golfers and tree huggers unite
Get out your granola bars and your organic raisins. Now you can convert your golf cart to a more “green” version by installing this $1900 solar panel to the roof.
Al Gore was spotted golfing with one of these carts last week and is proposing that golfers receive carbon offsets if they install the unit on their golf carts.
Solar Golf Cart
Go Green and save money with a solar powered golf cart. It is easy to convert your Club Car DS or E-Z-GO Med/TXT to solar power for a fraction of the cost of a new solar golf cart. For every one and three-quarters hours that the golf cart is outside in peak sun, it will go one mile (an average of 5 miles a day) without being plugged in. The cart becomes a portable electric generator-what a benefit for campers in remote areas! Using solar rather than fossil fuel power on the golf cart reduces the CO2 released into the air by 452 pounds per year. For an individual, your return on investment is 20% in the first year. Further, take a 30% deduction off your Federal income taxes for going solar; in many states, the solar purchase is also exempt from sales tax.
