Local Innovator Partners Internationally
(SPENCER, MA) – FLEXcon, an innovator in adhesive coating and laminating, today announced that it has been tapped by Tecumseh, ON, based Unconquered Sun Solar Technologies, a manufacturer of premium lightweight photovoltaic panels, to provide essential materials for its Solar Golf Cart Conversion Kits. FLEXcon is providing the backsheet for the solar panels, as well as the custom foam tape used in the manufacture and installation of the solar panels onto the golf carts.
Unconquered Sun is providing golf cart distributors and manufacturers with an energy efficient alternative that increases cart run time by 30 percent and increases battery life by up to 50 percent.
“Golf cart distributors and manufacturers need to consider offering golf cart options that help reduce energy usage and operating costs,” said Sean Moore, CEO of Unconquered Sun Solar Technologies. “Having worked with FLEXcon before, we knew they would be the perfect partner to help us bring this exciting product to market. FLEXcon’s ability to rapidly develop custom solutions allowed us to deliver golf cart conversion kits, ahead of our competitors.”
The kit converts used and new golf carts into energy efficient vehicles and comes with a gauge to show distance travelled, how many hours of battery life is left, and how much energy is being generated. Soon Unconquered Sun will provide a GPS application, so all carts in the fleet can be monitored by the GPS system.
“Unconquered Sun is known as a market innovator that has been able to identify and develop relevant applications for its photovoltaic panels,” said Michelle Ostiguy, Director, Photovoltaic & Barrier at FLEXcon. “We immediately jumped at the chance to work with Unconquered Sun to develop custom solutions, to make the Solar Golf Cart Conversion Kits a reality. It today’s economy, the vendors that can develop new, innovative ways to use their solar panels are most likely to succeed in this competitive marketplace.”
