There are many who believe that solar power is only applicable when it is stationary. Apparently, there are some who disagree with this assessment. A Swiss-made catamaran, known as the Sun21, has just become the first motorized vehicle ever to cross the Atlantic Ocean while using no fuel. The vessel is 14 meters (about 42 feet) long and is equipped with 60 square meters of solar panels. The crew plans to double up on the adventure, running next to New York.
I admit, sometimes we here at AutoblogGreen take the "green" a little more seriously than the "auto" part of our name. I'm ok with this, because part of what make a car green is what powers it, and what powers a green car can often power a jet, a motorcycle or a boat.
