How do solar powered boats work? On the roof of the Nexus Revo 870 Electric, the maximum capacity is used for solar panels. The energy from the sun is converted into electric energy. This energy is used to power the boat to provide a comfortable - zero emission - tour on the water or when you have found a mooring spot in nature to provide energy for the hotel facilities onboard. When you are not boating or using facilities onboard, the solar energy is stored in the battery for later use. When you are in a harbor with shore power, you can also use shore power to charge the batteries.
