If it just adds a few % it could be worth while (depending on cost) especially as they seem to be developing light weight full spectrum units.Brake Horse Power wrote: ↑Thu Nov 14, 2019 12:04 am
Agree on that. I did a quick math on what would happen if you place solar cells on the containers of a large container vessel. Different case but I thought I concluded maybe you can have 4 megawatt peak..which seams a lot but it requires a lot more to replace the 100MW internal combustion engine

Maybe not so far off. They are also developing airships with solar wrapped around the envelope. Above the clouds so constant power.
