Green Energy Houseboat Adventure

The green energy houseboat is dry docked in San Antonio,TX
This houseboat adventure is how to make it green energy efficient? I bought a small 31 ft houseboat that I call FREEDOM. I have it in dry dock where I live, while I redo everything to make it as green as possible.
When I'm finished, I'm going to live on it on the ICW (IntraCoastal Waterway). The real adventure is that I have no idea what I'm doing!
If you have any tips, let me know. Right now, I'm thinking Natures Head, Air X Marine, Sharp Solar panels and no idea for the generator yet.
Let me know if you'd like to hear more? Thanks, Mo / FREEDOM Reply - Answer
Well Morris, congratulations on your decision on making your houseboat green as possible. It sounds like you're on your way to doing it right.Some of my tips to achieve a "green houseboat" are:
1) Look at your consumption of 12v and 120 volt power, this is the starting point to making a green energy efficient houseboat.
2) You have chosen some of the popular energy producing methods, solar panels, wind generator, etc... The composting head (toilet) is an environmentally friendly choice also.
3) Some more articles on having a solar or green houseboat
Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their green energy efficient houseboat experiences.
