    The solar charger golf cart has been running for a week now. I haven't used the charger in that long either. Batts are topped off and charger is in trickle mode.
    It got a lot of use on Sunday. That was the real test. Batts were fully recharged by mid Monday. We just kick it out the door when we open the shop and let it charge all day.

    It has one 245W grid tie panel and a Genasun Boost Charge Controller. The charge controller has a DC-DC converter to bump up the available voltage for MPPT regulation to the 48V battery pack.
    I have seen 197W peak recorded. That's power out of the charge controller as measured by a Watt meter.

    I would say it works better than what we were hoping for. No more plugs and chargers and extension cords really makes operation nice and simple.


    Here are a couple of pics
    Wow, you did a fantastic job !!!
