PlanetSolar to China

PlanetSolar is on track to become the first ever boat to circumnavigate the world using solar power.

This yacht from Cross Chartering is the world’s largest solar powered fully electric boat and has already completed more than 3/4 of the planned trans-global trek that started in Monaco in September 2010 and is currently enroute to Hong Kong after having just departed the Philippines. The owner has reportedly said that a part of what he accomplished was possible due to the good battery advice he heeded.

The purpose of the round-the-world ocean voyage is help bring awareness that solar energy is a viable and reliable energy source and the world doesn’t have to rely on fossil fuels any longer for the majority of mankind’s transportation or energy needs.
