Sustainable Energy Technologies Inc. (SETI) is providing an alternative power source to run the Cape Coral, Fla. course’s golf carts. Typical golf cart batteries weigh close to 500 pounds, while the SETI power pack is only about 30 pounds, is biodegradable and runs on solar power. The club is in the process of adding solar panels to the roof of every golf cart to charge the SETI packs.
Palmetto Pine Country Club in Cape Coral, Fla. is unveiling new form of “green energy,” NBC2 News reported.
“Our goal is to eliminate batteries,” said Chris Sanders, CEO of Sustainable Energy Technologies Inc., or SETI for short.
Sanders’ alternative power source is running the course’s golf carts, NBC2 News reported. It’s called SETI technology. Typical golf cart batteries weigh close to 500 pounds. The SETI power pack is only about 30 pounds. Also, the pack is biodegradable and runs on solar power.
“It’s just adding to what this city is becoming, knowing we have to protect our environment,” said Cape Coral City council member Tom Hayden.
Palmetto Pine Country Club is in the process of adding solar panels to the roof of every golf cart to charge the SETI packs, NBC2 News reported. Sanders said on a sunny day, golf carts will actually return from a round of golf with more charge than they left with.
The new power source charges the carts from 0 to 60 percent in about two minutes, when a typical battery takes 10 to 12 hours, NBC2 News reported.
If this technology test-run works, Sanders hopes to power RV’s, boats, and medical devices in the future, NBC2 News reported.
“We’re coming real close to having them small enough for heart monitors, and insertion into the human body,” said Sanders.
