Electric Vehicle Power Systems ( 2 Articles )
EVPS has developed, tested and is taking orders for our commercial retrofit PHEV designed for pick-up trucks and cargo vans. Unlike other companies, EVPS retrofits/converts existing trucks with an affordable, effective, technology neutral plug-in hybrid-electric drive system that does not require changes to the internal-combustion engine, transmission, vehicle support systems or emissions equipment. See more photos of the light-duty hybrid system. Check out thebrochure for more information.
- Retains engine, transmission, emissions equipment
- Retains factory systems — HVAC, power equipment, etc.
- 25-40% improved mpg (est.) in start/stop driving
- 25+% reduced tailpipe emissions
- On-board charger — 120V/240V outlets
- Vehicle continues to operate if hybrid system inoperable for some reason
- Hybrid systems transferable to another vehicle
- One-day installation

EVPS 100% Electric EcoVehicle
The Company is offering 100% battery powered vehicles using the dual-motor drive system. The vehicle is ideal for lower-speed applications in the US in applications up to 45-50 mph (75-85 km). For locations outside the US, vehicles can be shipped fully assembled, or partially assembled with final assembly at user’s location. See the brochure for more information.
EVPS Retrofit Hybrid System – Refuse Truck
EVPS is working with two outside companies to help develop a hybrid drive for refuse trucks. Refuse trucks are ideal candidates for hybrids. In typical urban applicaitons, refuse trucks average 3 mpg or less and consume large amounts of fuel. A municipal refuse truck driven 36,000 miles/year in start/stop conditions uses about 12,000 gallons of fuel. Converting to hybrid saves 3,000 gallons of fuel. EVPS is working toward having a development refuse truck in tests by 2010:Q4, possibly sooner.
EVPS Retrofit Hybrid System – Shuttle Buses
EVPS’ system can convert shuttle buses to hybrids. An airport parking shuttle driver travels eight hours per day over the same 3-5 mile route with speeds of no more than 35 mph and stopping 5-6 or more times per mile. Our hybrid system increases fuel economy and decreases emissions for these high-profile vehicles.
EVPS Powered Marine/Terminal Truck ("Yard Dog")
Trucks used in truck terminals or marine ports — a.k.a. "yard dogs" — are ideal for retrofit hybrids. Yard dogs often average less than 3 miles per gallon and are frequently over-the-road tractors, near the end of service life. Such vehicles are not well maintained and have extremely high emissions relative to miles traveled. The company is in the initial stage of designing a yard dog with hybrid electric or 100% electric drive system. Call or e-mail for more
Our consulting team, sales engineers, and field technicians have the experience necessary to help you asses which fuel makes sense for your operation, develop an implementation strategy to assure a smooth transition, and convert your existing equipment to the appropriate alternative fuel.
Our goal is to present you with alternative fuel options that will reduce your operations costs and your environmental impact. We realize that in today’s economy, reducing your fleet’s environmental impact only makes sense when it also reduces your overall operations cost. We look at our fleet relationships with the long term in mind and want to offer solutions that make sense for you, not what creates the highest value for us.
Please enjoy the articles found below in this blog and don’t forget to subscribe to this page to get the latest fleet owner relevant information regarding alternative fuel conversions, our free service to you to assure your organization is getting only “fleet ready” solution updates that can impact your bottom line and carbon footprint. If you would like to schedule a free feasibility consult please drop us a line through the contact us tab to schedule. To busy for a meeting in person? We also have free webinars available to help you decide for yourself what conversion makes sense for you and answer your initial questions, check the front page for dates that suite your schedule.
Solar Hybrid ( 1 Articles )
Now everyone can enjoy the benefits of owning a solar golf cart with the Peel and Stick Roof Kit from Earth Care Products, Inc. This revolutionary new product offers an easy and affordable way for consumers to GO GREEN.
No gas is required to run a solar cart. As gas prices go up and natural resources become more valuable, solar energy is no longer a convenience-it is now a necessity!
You do not need to buy a complete new solar powered-cart. Just install our Break Through Technology,a Solar Cell Thin Film Peel and Stick, almost non breakable panel, installs directly on your existing golf cart roof for a fraction of the cost of a new cart and receive all the advantages of extended life of your batteries and tax rebates for going solar. The warranty for the solar roof panel is 3 YEARS.
The Earth Care Solar Replacement Roof Kit:
- Is easy to apply.
- Saves money on electricity.
- The payback for investing in a golf cart solar panel roof can be as little as two years.
- Uses revolutionary flexible solar panels made with thin film amorphous silicon that are powerful, yet light and flexible.
- Allows individuals to save even more money with tax credits for purchasing solar.
- For every hour the golf cart solar panel roof is charging in peak sun, the original charge will maintain its distance, with one additional mile added when driving on flat terrain.
- Can be used on any passenger size golf cart

Our Solar Panels
- Thin Film Amorphous Silicon Solar Panels – Do not break
- Thin Film Amorphous Silicon Solar Panels Produce Watts Constantly During Daylight
- Thin Film Amorphous Silicon Solar Panels Produce Watts From Artificial Lighting
A key to Our Solar success was its ability to lay down three separate layers of amorphous silicon, each tuned to a different frequency of sunlight. This created a cell with three active semiconductor layers, called a “triple-junction” cell. The top active layer in a triple-junction cell captures a portion of the solar spectrum, and the remaining sunlight penetrates to the second layer, which captures another part of the solar spectrum, and likewise for the third and final layer. As a result, the cell converts more of the solar spectrum into electricity, achieving a higher conversion efficiency.
