We’re here to demonstrate how you can charge a 36V or 48V golf cart battery bank with a single solar panel using Genasun’s GV-Boost solar charge controller. Unlike most solar charge controllers, the GV-Boost increases the voltage and decreases the current at its output, allowing a single solar panel to be used to charge the higher voltage battery bank.
Let’s say, for example, you have access to a 12 or 20 volt solar panel, but you don’t have enough room on the golf cart’s roof to fit multiple panels to add it up to 36 volts. All you need to do is put the single solar panel on and use the GV-Boost, which will actually charge your 36 or 48V battery bank.
See how altE’s Solar Queen does it…
