    I love the pessimism out there which assumes all electricity must come from coal… ever here of BC Hydro? Or mini hydro power?

    Kudos to building a \”green\” boat. HOW we choose to recharge the batteries will determine just how \”green\” we are. Everyone else can just be green with envy.

    I’m thrilled, although disappointed, I did not spear head this idea. This tecnollogy is huge for all ships. Removing the exhaust tha is put into the water will be a requirment before long. Don’t stop your R&D to that end.

    Fully electric water vehicles =’s removing chemical pollutants from the waters. Simple as that. Boats do some SERIOUS pollution.

    Because electricity generation is not emissions-free and you have to plug it in, there are still emissions associated with operating the boat.

    Please do not buy into a tricky advertising campaign/greenwashing.
