In collaboration with UA Parking & Transportation Services (PTS), SolarCats is launching a pilot project to see if a pair of golf carts can be successfully retrofitted with solar power, and whether the system saves the university on maintenance costs. The panels are expected to double the life of the carts’ batteries, which typically need to be replaced every two years at a cost of up to $180 each. With 30 carts in the fleet, these panels could lead to big savings for the UA.
