Sustainable Energy Sources

Fuel consumption in boats is much higher than in vehicles on land, so switching to alternative fuels can have a huge impact on your carbon footprint.

If you have a large, diesel-powered committee boat or large diesel generators, consider purchasing a blend of biodiesel to power these machines. Biodiesel can be added to any engine without any modification and, as far as we’ve seen, it’s always marked a few cents cheaper than conventional diesel.

To fulfill this Best Practice do at least one of the following:

  • Use biodiesel in any onsite generators, committee boats or race boats.
  • Purchase renewable energy credits from electric company.
  • Install solar panels or wind turbine onsite or aboard race boats.
