Any alternative houseboat energy choices available?

Any alternative houseboat energy choices available?

I am wondering if a source is available for alternative energy houseboat plans? I want to be completely off the grid using solar, hydro, or wind energies.


I'm curious to any and all input. Thanks, James.

I use solar on my boat
by: Claude

I installed solar on my small houseboat last year and the 100w panel that I have on the roof is excellent to keep my basic systems powered up.

They tend to work better on sunny days compared to cloudy days, but this could be due to the quality of the panels.

I would definitely install them on my next boat.

Sincerely, Claude

Off Grid Lifecycle Testing
by: Jon

Hello Ian, I am a boat designer in Phoenix, AZ. I have done extensive simulations for non-combustion energy supply specifically for houseboats and other water craft. I would love the opportunity to talk with you and anyone else that is interested in this work.

I offer complete design services for all houseboat systems including mechanical, plumbing, structural and electrical. I also have access to national laboratory data that I use for simulations and life-cycle reliability assessment.

I have worked with most of the larger houseboat builders, so I can manage both small part fabrication and the complete build.

I do not publish (web or other) my designs as they often find their way to the marketplace without my consent, but I am always willing to share and talk with interested parties and potential clients.
