Electric Vehicles and Marine Solar
Stuart Watson - Wauchope Solar founder, and now consultant - has a great interest in sustainable transport from bicycles to boats. Stuart sees the great synergy between solar power and electric vehicle transport and promotes over-sizing solar installations to provide cheap fossil free sustainable transport.
In 2007 Wauchope Solar sponsored the conversion of a Mitsubishi Charade to an electric vehicle (EV). Prior to being sold, the Charade completed 50,000 electric kilometres, at an average 200 watt hours per kilometre.
Solar Coaster – the Wauchope Solar sponsored electric yacht - competes in the Port Macquarie Yacht Club races and has done over 5,000 fossil free miles up and down the coast from Port Macquarie and out to Lord Howe Island.
Stuart Watson is an agent for Port Macquarie and Lord Howe Island for Varley Electric Vehicles (including golf carts). Varley is a leading Australian electric vehicle company. The range of Electric Utility and Resort vehicles is extensive and includes almost maintenance free Lithium Battery options and sealed powerful AC motors.
In 2018, Wauchope Solar arranged the delivery of two of the EMC range to Lord Howe Island. The sale of these electric vehicles, coupled with the installation 27 solar PV systems on Lord Howe Island forms a significant contribution to the Island’s Renewable Energy Roadmap.
Wauchope Solar can also supply imported Japanese EVs particularly the Nissan NV200 and used Nissan Leafs.
We also provide sensible home and business EV charging solutions including Zappi, Delta and Tesla chargers.
