Taking a float plane between Vancouver and Vancouver Island is a very memorable Canadiana experience.  Moving about that magnificent backdrop with quiet, non-polluting electric engines, is next level awesome.  See:  Harbour Air to convert all its seaplanes to electric for the first all-electric airline:

“Seaplane operator Harbour Air and electric aviation company MagniX have announced plans to make Harbour Air’s entire commercial seaplane fleet all-electric.

Being billed as the “world’s first all-electric airline,” the partnership will see MagniX convert all of Harbour Air’s more than 30 seaplanes to electric. The planes will be powered by MagniX’s magni500, a 750-horsepower all-electric motor.

Harbour Air operates the largest all-seaplane fleet in North America. It flies 12 routes in the Pacific Northwest in Canada and the U.S., from cities like Seattle, Vancouver, and Victoria and smaller destinations. The company says more than 500,000 passengers fly on its 30,000 commercial flights each year.”

Producing different types of renewable energy to feed the grid and charge electric vehicles and other equipment is a massive growth area that is already creating tons of good jobs.  This is all much needed as the world pivots away from destructive models and technology toward new investment-worthy themes.
