    It's not clean unless it's hydro, somewhere someone is burning your granny, oil, wood, coal, uranium to generate the " clean" energy it uses. And the damn batteries certainly won't be green either when disposal time comes around.

      Cessna 172 is way too heavy to be an efficient solar plane or even electric transport.

      I think Jukka Tervamki's idea when developed into a 4 seater could take a long way as a hybrid solar/electric ac.
