Replacing IC engine with electric motor

I haven't yet bought my boat, new to the world of sailing, But planning ahead. I'm looking at how to limit my carbon footprint. Has anyone replaced their gas or diesel motor with a 20-25hp electric motor?
Or any thoughts on doing so?
I found a few through google for around $2000.

Also, if you, or someone you know, have done this, how much was the install cost?

Thanks!
