Saving Energy with Solar Power : Using Golf Cart Batteries to Save Energy

We are down here in our basement. It’s not
very comfortable but we need the space because here, what you see there, is our golf car
batteries. You can use different kind of batteries. There are much more sophisticated ones, but
they are much more expensive so we choose just to get golf car batteries. Some of them
are even recycled from someone who didn’t need it any more. One of these batteries is
about fifty-five dollars. Why do we use golf car batteries? A golf car battery is a deep
cycle battery. That means it can store a lot of energy but it’s not able to give it away
in a short moment. In a car you have a battery that needs full power when you turn around
your key. In a golf car battery you want to have a battery that you can drive for a long
time. The same idea we have here because we want to store the electricity we get for as
long as possible because we never know when the sun is shining or when the wind is blowing.
That’s kind of a huge storage and the more batteries you have the more storage you have.

    solar and wind power is the future, at least it should be.

    Also, I think it is a good idea to restrict people to drive only golf carts when they only are commuting within city limits to reduce gasoline consumption. It would be more efficient.

    no offense, but you don't know what you're talking about. Golf carts simply don't have the range. Most commuters commute long distance and a lot of cities in the united states simply don't have good mass transit systems because of the stranglehold detroit's had on our transportation system since the early 20th century. Hell Los Angeles had a great one until the big three pooled together and dismantled it. Who Framed Roger Rabbit was allegorical, whodathunkit?

    Guys, making your own home energy does not need to be difficult (I used to feel it did). I'll give you some advice right now. Look for a alternative home energy called Xobotano Home Energy (google it). Seriously, Xobotano Home Energy has save large sums of my money. I probably shouldn't even be mentioning it cause I don't want a bunch of other folks out there running the same "game" but whatever, I am just in a great mood today so I'll share the wealth haha.

    My works too. I used Inplix handbooks and build it without any problems.

    I can now leave expensive high electric bills. You can make your own power with producing power process “boma fetching unique” (Google it), and that means you are saved from paying high electric bills. With a few easy tricks and minor adjustments to the way you operate your appliances, you could drive your energy costs down.

    im sure you'll build it yourself. I made it 2 weeks ago thanks to Avasva website.

  17. Laticia Cull says:

    I bought instruction from Avasva and I build it very very cheap.

  18. Shantay Madison says:

    Take some info about energy on Avasva . It was very helpful to me 😀

  19. Dennis Harold says:

    Really enjoyed your video. Let's check Avasva plans also

    Just came upon your site, in that I'm thinking of changing out my Motorhome batteries as well. I've got 4 golf cart 6V batteries, thinking of going with AGM this time. Wondering if I should add two more ( ) as I have a residential fridge that tends to pull out many Ah's from my system. I'm new to this lifestyle, so a ton to learn…nothing for wifi or cell boosting yet, so as I say, lots to learn.
