Maid Of The Mist Ferries Are Electric And Truly Zero-Emission

It needs just a 316 kWh battery and an on-shore fast-charging station to keep running the entire day.

Earlier this month Maid of the Mist launched two new-generation all-electric ferries, which take tourists to Niagara Falls, “to experience one of the wonders of the natural world undisturbed by exhaust fumes, engine noise or vibrations”.

We first heard about the project in 2019, but it took quite some time to build the ferries and get approvals. Both units entered service on October 6, 2020.

The first one is named the James V. Glynn, in honor of the Maid of the Mist chairman, while the second the Nikola Tesla, in honor of the renowned energy pioneer.
