National Zoo Solar PV & Golf Carts

This 4kW fixed ground mounted Solar PV system  is intended to be used to offset the power needs of charging two electric golf carts, which are used by visitors. The solar powered carts showcase that electric vehicles are effective and can be charged using renewable energy. The two golf carts are also fitted with solar panel roofs which reduce charging time by more than 50%, and branded to attract attention. The surplus energy produced by the PV system is fed into the Zoo’s main supply to reduce daily electricity consumption.
