PowerDocks, the first docks that generate renewable power for boats, just won an Innovation Award at the Miami International Boat Show. PowerDocks make the first floating solar dock with walkable non-skid solar modules for energy storage and power distribution; they can provide renewable electrical power to boaters in remote areas or those who want to operate off the grid.
The Innovation Award was made by the National Marine Manufacturers Association and Boating Writers International during the show. PowerDocks also were featured at the show’s first Solar Electric Power Zone, where they were hooked up with a Bruce 22T electric-powered boat with a Torqueedo electric motor.
The award-winning PowerDocks come on a 10×20-foot solar platform that features 1,248 watts of solar power generation, 4,000 kilowatt-hours of energy storage, and power distribution from 120VAC, 30A and 50A marine power units.
