The Solar Electric Tractor (Solectrac) is a full function agricultural tractor that operates with up to 5 times the efficiency of a diesel tractor performing the same farming tasks.
Solectracs can also be used for portable power, home power, water pumping and mechanical functions as well as for hauling and transportation needs.
Because the Solectrac is electric its batteries can be charged directly by clean renewable energy or it can be charged at low cost from the electric utility grid at off-peak rates.
Solectracs use patented “quick change” battery packs to extend operational periods.
