The solar cart is back in action. The original golf-cart was donated by Michael Bittman, aka Dr. Sparks, our site electrician. Alumni Karen Taylor donated three 50 watt solar panels. With six 6-volt batteries fully charged, the cart is able to go 6 – 7 miles. This is plenty for small chores around the site, carrying maintenance tools and items for the landscaping crew and moving compost or rocks. After some use across Arcosantis rough terrain, Gwen Birk and Sparky installed some heavy duty leaf springs and shocks. They are showing off the solar cart after this modification.
