Optimized Solar Skyroof
A complete solar roof replacement system
Upgrade to solar and never plug in again
The Skyroof is a simple to install, plug and play, Optimized solar conversion roof replacement that captures, stores and maximizes the energy harvested from the sun to power a wide range of cruisers. With our built-in Nexus Solar Charge Optimizer combined with SolarDrive's modern roof design, The Skyroof extends the range of a standard electric cruiser by 35% and enhances the performance and efficiency of the solar harvest by more than 30%, while improving charge acceptance, increasing re-charge speeds, supporting 100% re-charge capacity and extending the lifespan of batteries up to four times the normal life-cycle. The Skyroof features our custom Smart Solar Management Software, offering individual systems and large-scale fleets real time and cumulative tracking and monitoring of their solar infrastructure, energy usage and battery status.
Enhances power & extends range by 35%
The Skyroof improves the conversion efficiency of solar energy by maximizing the energy harvested from solar panels and improving their performance by more than 30%. Our technology monitors and equalizes the energy absorbed by individual solar cells to sustain power delivery at full capacity, including during cloudy conditions and peak demand periods. Made with highly efficient back contact solar cells giving the system the lead in power per square inch, the Skyroof provides standard-size cruisers with up to 10 miles of increased driving range while ensuring maximum power production in all situations.
For golf course fleets, upgrading to The Skyroof eliminates the need to purchase additional golf carts to handle multiple rounds played, while continuously tracking real-time usage patterns and collecting user data.
Extends battery life up to 4x with faster charging speeds
The Skyroof maintains the health of the battery bank by improving charge acceptance and energy reconfiguration to extend the lifespan of batteries up to four times the normal life-cycle. Rather than flooding batteries with energy overload, our built-in Optimizing technology reconfigures energy into smaller packets, distributing only necessary voltage to prevent over and undercharging of batteries and maintaining optimal battery health. Our proprietary technology monitors battery voltage, current flow and battery temperature, drawing energy from solar panels to batteries as quickly as the batteries will allow, resulting in faster charging speeds throughout the entire charge process, reducing time spent plugged in to the grid, and supporting 100% recharge capacity.
Real time system monitoring & data management
The Skyroof includes our Smart Solar Management software, offering real time and cumulative monitoring and management of solar infrastructure, energy usage and battery status information. Our intelligent software gives individual systems immediate and valuable information on system performance and energy savings, all delivered in a sophisticated, user friendly bluetooth data stream to mobile devices.
Upgrading to include our Smart Solar Dashboard, a 16" waterproof LCD dashboard factory installed into the Skyroof, gives cruiser drivers access to important real-time metrics while driving, including battery health, battery charge, speed, miles remaining, trip distance and more.
Fleet management as easy as 1, 2, 3
Our Smart Solar Fleet Management software ensures a positive ROI on solar investments by tracking usage patterns and collecting user data. With daily, weekly, monthly or even real-time data, our software provides automatic recording of energy gains and consumption without having to piece together charging data. Our software helps to improve the efficiency of the solar infrastructure by quickly identifying locations where the system is expending the most energy.
Flexible solutions to retrofit almost any cruiser
The Skyroof is a modular construction that easily replaces the roof of most standard two to eight seater cruisers. Offering 48 sizes and combinations, the modular construction of the system allows The Skyroof to be customized to fit virtually any cruiser. Our Skyroof will work with cruisers employing a battery range of 24 - 72 volts, with the ability to match any roof combination with any battery voltage. For custom size cruisers, or other types of electric vehicles, trailers, RVs and more, contact us to learn more about our custom tailored solar solutions.
Easy installation & maintenance
Featuring tempered glass with high efficiency European solar cells, The Skyroof offers high performance with extreme durability. Delivered pre-assembled and featuring a universal adjustable mounting system and simple electrical connections, no special tools or knowledge are required, making installation as simple as plug & play. Our roofs are also transferable to new fleets at any time.
Save money & invest in a sustainable future
The global trend toward promoting sustainable energy has lead to numerous government sponsored tax credits and/or rebates worldwide. For Americans, a new US Solar bill extends the current 30% Solar Investment Tax Credit for both residential and commercial projects through the end of 2019. Additional Federal tax credits, grants, state and local utility tax credits, rebates and tariff programs for solar conversion make it simple to save money while going green.
