Most of us will need to wait for the cost to come down before installing such a system, but a prototype solar-hydrogen home power system is up and running in rural New Jersey. Mike Strizki, a civil engineer, is living entirely off the grid thanks to a solar energy system that not only powers his house but also converts excess energy into hydrogen that supplies his electricity at night, He also uses the hydrogen in his fuel-cell car.

While I think hydrogen might have missed its window (I'm already looking forward to nanotech batteries and capacitors), I love that he's put the concept into action here in the States. It's a great proof-of-concept and another step forward in our quest to harness the greatest energy source in the solar system.
