Sarasota, FL, January 23, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Golf Cart Solar, a Sarasota, Florida-based solar technology company announced today that it has been approved as the solar golf cart supplier to The Allianz Championship, a PGA Champions tournament. Golf Cart Solar will be showcasing its solar technology on a select number of carts during the tour event.
“Golf courses and other heavy users of golf carts have been desperately seeking a way to get solar integrated into their carts, but until now the cost has been prohibitive,” said Doug Fyvolent, partner in Golf Cart Solar. “With our technology and incentive programs, adding solar to carts can be now be added at no cost, making it not only affordable, but a ‘must have’ in 2012,” said Fyvolent.
Solar reduces electric charging costs by more than 20%, one of the major expenses of operating a golf cart. “20% is a safe number, but our tests show savings are much more than that,” said Fyvolent.
Showcasing breakthrough solar technology on a golf cart is a first for the Allianz Championship event. “The technology and price point was just too compelling to ignore,” said Ryan Dillon Tournament Director. “Every course wants solar carts, and we’re proud to be the first in the United States to showcase this product on our course during the tournament because it fits our goal of being THE green golf tournament on the Champions Tour. Needless to say, we’re pretty excited.”
Golf Cart Solar will be unveiling the new program at the PGA Show, Orlando, FL January 26-28, 2012, booth 2228.
