Definitely interesting. They'd have to have a non-electric standby boat if the electricity goes off for the many reasons it does - to carry the electricians out to some of the more remote islands...

 

With the batteries being so hefty, is there an increased risk of fire? But I guess the risk would probably outweigh the benefits of less pollution.
