I just spoke a solar guy he said those thin flex panels are very inefficient panels at any price.

you need to use the solid panel Monocrystalline

What is the size of a roof panel? I've dabbled in solar and could price out a system you could install yourself if you just a bit handy.

A quick looks shows that for a 36v cart you can get a 220w panel (~42v @ 5a) that may fit a standard top. Cost is ~ $450. Add in a simple controller/charger for $100, and an additional $100 for brackets and wiring. For less then $700 you could be set to go.

One such is at

Other options available if you want to hook multiple panels in series to get the proper voltage.
