The vast majority of humans now recognize that curtailing and eliminating CO₂ emissions is the number one environmental priority, and many industries have implemented serious initiatives to achieve these goals. Unfortunately, the recreational boating industry in Canada is not one of them. The Mission of the Electric Boating Association of Canada and its passionate members is to ensure the accelerated transition to clean energy Boating on all Canadian lakes and waterways.
Whether for fishing, family fun or cruising the lake on a pontoon, even with our shorter summers, recreational boating is a way of life in Canada. Yet due to ongoing regulatory and industry negligence, today's ICE boat motors are ten times more polluting than their road vehicle counterparts. Many Canadian companies and communities are assuming leadership roles in the transition to clean energy boating but there is much to do. Today's eboats have all the elegance and power we need and none of the refueling and maintenance that we can all live without.
Gone are the days when the cost to buy an electric boat was prohibitive. Due to advancements in hull design, battery and motor technologies over the last ten years, total cost of ownership for electric propulsion boat motors is less than their internal combustion equivalents. And imagine never having to change a spark plug, clean a fuel line, or fill a gas tank. Ever. Start saving your money along with our lakes, waterways and the environment. Go Eboating Today!
