Solar sailor heading to Hong Kong

The Australian-invented solar powered ferry could soon become a frequent sight in and around Hong Kong's harbour.

The ferry is designed like the Toyota Prius using an electric/diesel hybrid engine with solar panels to power their electrical needs and a diesel backup engine. It means that cruising at less than 6 knots can be done with the zero emissions engine.

See the Green Living pedia and the Sydney Morning Herald.
