Can an E-Rickshaw Run on Solar Panel?

Now-a-days we are seeing increasing number of E-rickshaws on the streets of every city. Electric motor runs these rickshaws. The motor is powered by batteries fitted with rickshaws. These batteries are supplied with 230 volts of power supply which is charged with common socket. On a full charge battery the rickshaw runs as much as 80 km.


Today we can also generate electricity with the help of solar panels. Solar power gives us some degree of power supply and makes your system independent. So the question is, why not run a rickshaw by connecting solar panels on the rickshaw itself? Is this is possible that due to such solar rickshaw, its battery also gets charged? And again and again he has to 230 volt socket Do not carry for charging?

This is a really good question. In response, we will see why this is not entirely possible?


Solar Panel Installation Video on E-Rickshaw

In this video, we have explained every steps, you should watch this once time. A summarize information of this video is:


Step 1: Measurement of E-Rickshaw Roof

Step 2: Build Panel Stand 

Step 3: Mount Solar Panels

Step 4: Connection between Panel, Charge Controller, Battery

Step 5: Testing during the day time


Suppose the rickshaw motor is 1000 watts. And suppose that the rickshaw runs 60 km on the entire charge. These figures it may be a little less, but still we will make a simple calculation from them.


The speed of the rickshaw keeps on decreasing in the city, but suppose that it runs at an average speed is of 20 km per hour. That means, the rickshaw runs on full charge 60/20 = 3 hours.



Now because the rickshaw motor is 1000 watts, the rickshaw is 1000 watts x 3 hours = 3 kilowatt-hour (kWh) = 3 units in a day, as much electricity will use energy. Suppose the battery of this rickshaw was fully charged from the power supply at night. So this means that the battery capacity is 3 units, or more. If there are 4 batteries of 12 volt in the rickshaw, then each battery is rated 3000/4 = approx. 60 Ah, or more.


By the way, using a very large battery, the rickshaw will do more. But this suggestion is not fully practical. Because of the very large battery.The weight will also be very large, due to which the average speed of the rickshaw will be reduced.


The above calculation applies to the rickshaw which does not have a solar panel. Now we will see that by installing solar panel what will be benefits of it?


The solar panel produces 1000 W = 1 kW of solar electricity in about 10 square meters. Size of E-rickshaw, A panel of at least 4 square meters may be placed on it. Rickshaws run and park by installing even bigger panels. There will be difficulty in doing this, and the panel may also damage.




With its 4 square meter panel, the rickshaw will get 600 W power in the afternoon. If the rickshaw remains in the sun for 5-6 hours in the afternoon or If going in the sunlight, the 400 watt solar panel will generate about 2 units of solar energy.


We saw above that the battery capacity is 3 units or more. If the rickshaw stays in the sun for 5-6 hours in the afternoon or it goes, then it will get an additional 2 Unit will get energy. So the range of rickshaws, that is, the ability to cut distances, will increase in the same proof. That means its range will be 40 x 5/3 = 100 km, provided that the battery was fully charged before noon


But the reality is that it is not possible to keep or run E-rickshaws in the sun for 5-6 hours in the afternoon. There are thin roads, And both of them big buildings. Suppose the rickshaw got 50 percent sunlight. Then its range will be 40 x 4/3 = 40 km. This means that the rickshaw gets only 20 km from the solar panel.


This arithmetic indicates that the benefit of the rickshaw trade by installing solar panels is proof of the cost of the panel. I am very limited. And that too depends on how much sunshine a rickshaw can eat in the afternoon.



In the future, the efficiency of solar panels receiving solar energy may increase. Then maybe given above There was a lot of improvement in mathematics. But till then, we will have to follow this math!

I’m Angel Castor from the US. White Caucasian Female. I’m 43 years old and I got married at the age of 25, I have only two children and I am living happily.

After five years of marriage my husband’s behavior became so strange that I didn’t really understand what was going on. He packed out of the house to another woman’s house and I love him so much that I
never dream of losing him, I tried my best to make sure that my husband got back to me but all to no avail, I cried and cried seeking help. I discussed it with my best friend Alison and she told me she can help me. She told me of a man called Dr. Odunga, she told me he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love and Pregnancy issues he cannot solve and she told me how he has helped her and countless number of people in

restoring their relationship. I quickly contacted his email address at I explained all my problems to him, he told me that I should not worry that all my problems will be fine. Presently, I am very happy I got my husband back to me with the help of Dr. Odunga and we are living happily with so much love for each other.

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
