The Golf Cart Group are the exclusive importers and distributors of EMC vehicles and have recently become the first Australian company to offer a Solar charged electric golf cart.
After significant research, the solar charged electric vehicles are now being offered as part of a mainstream product line up.
Using an innovative ‘active charging process’, EMC’s solar vehicles offer a credible increase in range, use less mains-power at charging time and offer an increased battery life. The vehicles are also economical to run and to maintain.
How does this work?
Energy Collection – Active charging
All solar powered vehicles rely on both solar and battery energy to maintain a steady flow of electricity.
EMC’s solar charged vehicles are built with an integrated roof-mounted solar panel which collects solar energy whenever the vehicle is in the sunshine and stores it for when the sky is overcast.
This energy is used to actively and continuously charge the vehicles ‘Trojan’ batteries. Continuous charging prevents the batteries from sulfating and limits the sulphur build-up which is the main cause of battery failure.
Along with the active charging which maintains a constant and reliable electricity flow, EMC’s solar vehicles use ‘regenerative braking’ technology to reduce the overall level of energy required by the vehicle.
This technology captures the energy usually lost in the braking process in conventional vehicles, and recycles it back into the cells of the batteries to recharge them.
EMC solar charged vehicles do not need to be mains charged as often, or for as long as conventional electric vehicles. When a mains charge is required, the vehicle is charged using a small, lightweight charger which is supplied with the vehicle.
Support the environment, reduce energy use, recycle and ‘go green’!
