Project Summary

Solar Powered Ground Mount Cart Charging Stations

James Grigg, Director of Operations, Facilities Services & Rami J. Haddad, Ph.D., Dept. of Electrical Engineering ($14,312.00)

Using off the shelf parts, Electrical Engineering students designed a solar powered charging station for golf carts and other low speed electric vehicles (LSV’s). Over the last few years, the number of electrical carts on campus has grown and so is the need to plug them in to a wall outlet to charge overnight. Creating a sample solar powered charging station gets the cart charging off the grid and also reduces the need for running power in difficult situations.
