    First Solar Powered Transatlantic Crossing by Boat

    This year Sun21 became the first solar powered boat to complete a transatlantic crossing. The vessel, built and sponsored by the Swiss Transatlantic21 Association, traveled a total of 7000 miles from Seville, Spain to New York City without using a drop of fuel. The vessel averaged 107 nautical miles a day, comparable to a sailboat of similar size. To read more about this historic event or view footage of the crossing go to

    I'm the sort of guy who passions to seek fresh stuff. Currently I am manufacturing my own photovoltaic panels. I am doing it all alone without the help of my staff. I'm using the internet as the only way to acheive this. I discovered a really awesome site that explains how to contruct pv panels and wind generators. The website explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

    I'm not exactly sure bout how accurate the information given there iz. If some experts over here who had xp with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the page it will be grand and I would highly appreciate it, because I really passion solar panel construction.

    Thanks for reading this. U people are the best.
