The Suntech-Guosheng ferry is an eco-friendly ferry that runs primarily off of its Solarsailor sails. These sails are designed to track the sun and convert its rays into energy.

The Suntech-Guosheng ferry is actually a hybrid ferry which can run off of a diesel engine on those cloudy days. However, it is still a big step in curbing the carbon footprint of ships. Hopefully, this tech catches on as sea life needs clean air just as much as people do. Stats for Solarized Ferries Trending: Older & Chilly
