    We have solar powered boards and our co. does very poor of taking care of our stuff, so they are always breaking down and we even pay some to fix them were not hacking them together our self’s. I would think solar would be the way to go I think all you really need to do is check the water in the batteries.

    I would think about where you are going to use it Hydro. Solar power is would be pretty useless if you don't get sun....
