The solar-powered Loon boat makes for the perfect way to sail green
One of the best ways to spend a lazy afternoon is sailing the azure, and doing so without stamping an ugly carbon footprint has never been easier before! Rome-based Tamarack Lake Electric Boat Company has just unveiled an eco-friendly way to boating called the Loon. In essence a full-fledged 10-passenger boat, this one uses solar energy to power up and is indeed a unique and energy-efficient way to cruise offshore. Also, the company previously based in Ontario, has received incentives worth $300,000 from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and is looking forward to using the cash for bettering its current solar technology, pushing the Loon farther into sea without harming the environment!
