The Eco-Friendly Suntech-Guosheng Ferry Uses a Solar Sail for Power

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.
