[In Craig's voice from South Park] "If I had a Solar Hydrogen home I would be sooooo happy."

I think that alot of us would aspire to have this level of efficiency and being independant of the grid that this guy has.  ;D Thanks for the vid!

It's guys like that that should have a government position. Someone that seems to know how to accomplish something. Instead of talking about it and billing the American people and not coming up with the good. Now that's "Real" change!!!

No.  No you don't.  These kind of folks are better left in the real world where they can accomplish these kind of things.  You put him in a gov't position, you'd never see the end product.  And, in 30 years, when it finally DOES come out, it'll be 10 times as expensive and 1/8 as efficient and taxed and regulated to beat hell.
 
Maybe the next generation gov't, but nothing within the next 30yrs.

Ok, I'll agree, the next generation of Gov. This one needs a major enema to wash out decades of crap..
This man needs to promote this technology and spread around his knowledge/experience.

It is a very cool system using several new ideas - residential applications anyway.  The obvious drawback is cost.  The solar panels on his roof probably set him back almost $50,000 not including installation, brackets or wiring - just the panels.

My guess is that the entire system was easily $100,000.  It is a good start and a good case study for possibilities, but it also demonstrates the drawbacks of current technology and manufacturing processes.

But if we don't start now we'll never get there. And seeing the Gov. piss all that money away while a guy like that is doing it and funding himself.

The Gov. currently saddens me.
