Battery Life Enhancement
- In typical use, a golf cart battery is discharged to twenty percent of capacity (80% discharge). In this usage, batteries will need replacement after 520 charge cycles.
- Use of a Earth Care solar panel reduces depth of discharge to no lower than 65%. This extends battery lifetime to 730 charge cycles, a gain of almost 69%.
- In most cases, through typical cart use, the battery discharge will be in the 30-50% range, equaling a gain of more than double in battery life.
- In one test case, battery discharge depth was limited to 10% of the battery capacity. Battery lifetime for this battery could be extended to up to 5000 charge cycles
In DEC 2008 a Utility Patent Pending was filed for the USA & foreign countries for our charging systems.
We are the real thing! No cheap copies or imitations! Anyone can copy, compare, but do they have the record of testing, selling the product world wide? We have recently begun selling and shipping to golf courses. We wanted to test the product, and prove the product first! Which in turn also allowed time for other companies to imitate or create cheap copies of our systems. We are proud to have many of the major Universities who purchased up to 30 tops , tested , and even written major press releases.

For example Arizona is an aditional 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.
- You can earn $50 to $100 directly from the customer for installing the systems. The DVD and Wiring Instructions are posted on the front page of our web site and installs in minutes!
- Is easy to apply.
- Saves money on electricity. If you are doubling the charge cycles of your batteries it makes sense that you would be using 50% less electricity for charging your cart.
- A typical set of cart batteries cost an average of $700.00. By purchasing new batteries with your solar charging system, an additional tax credit of 30% of the battery cost can be taken if you purchase the batteries at the same time as the Solar charging System. In addition the savings by doubling the life of your batteries can be in excess of $700.00.
- The payback for investing in a golf cart solar panel roof can be as little as two years.
- Uses revolutionary flexible solar panels made with thin film amorphous silicon that are powerful, yet light and flexible.
- Extended Range. For every hour the golf cart solar panel roof is charging in peak sun, the original charge will maintain its distance, with one additional mile added when driving on flat terrain.
- Can be used on any passenger size golf cart.
- Installs in minutes on existing golf cart tops. In most cases, can be applied permanently to your existing golf cart top
- No gas is required to run a solar cart. As gas prices go up and natural resources become more valuable, solar energy is no longer a convenience-it is now a necessity!
- If the top is cut, shot or damaged in a certain area, the panel continues to work while the current simply goes around the damaged diode-Unlike many other type solar panels in the world
- If your top is not flat you can simply install one of our suggested Plexiglas or metal tops.
- If you utilize your cart for hunting, think about removing your top, adding an 72″ flat top for extended flexible roof top charging systems. Many hunters already remove their tops and add a sturdy metal top to carry deer stands, and game back and forth-why not have a charging panel on it as well
- You do not need to buy a complete new solar powered-cart. Just install our Break Through Technology,a Solar Cell Thin Film Peel and Stick, almost non breakable panel, installs directly on your existing golf cart roof for a fraction of the cost of a new cart and receive all the advantages of extended life of your batteries and tax rebates for going solar.
- Calculated Charge Time (For the life of the batteries) $258.00 in Savings
A 120-volt battery charger is rated to draw 10 amps of power. The power you use in charging the batteries is measured in kilowatt-hours.
The formula is “Volts X Amps = Watts”: The average charge time for a golf cart is 2 hours.
The average daily cost to charge a golf cart set of batteries is $ .24 cents. $.24 cents X 30 days per month = $7.20.
By adding an Earth Care Solar Charging System to your cart at least 50% of your charging cost disappears.
Over a period of 6 years, which includes the two year extended life of the batteries our system furnishes, you save $258.00.
Energy rating Multiplying Factor Rates
Charger:120 Volts X 10 Amps = 1.2 Kilowatts(1200 Watts)
Hourly Energy Consumption(KWH) 1.2 Killowatts X 1 Hour = 1.2 Kilowatt Hour
HI Utility Rate($0.20) 1.2 Kilowatts X $0.10 = $0.12 per hour of Charging
This does not include the time it takes to charge the batteries, watering extra, and labor.
Earth Care’s break through system is now being called the miracle invention of this century.
The panels are flexible and durable and simply attach to the top of the golf cart or any flat surface you select.
Earth Care Solar is proud to present you with state of the art Going Green Thin Cell Solar Products.
The key to our success is our unique solar panel solution. Earth Care peel and stick solar panels are more efficient than many other brands.
The Earth Care’s solar panel technology utilizes several separate layers of amorphous silicon, each tuned to a different frequency of sunlight.
This product works great on residential and commercial buildings as well. This is what makes our solar panels convert more of the available sunlight into electricity making Earth Care Solar Panels very efficient.
