"This 3,000-square-foot New Jersey house is Michael Strizki's life's work. It is run completely independently of the local power grid, using solar panels and a hydrogen storage system.
The solar panels cover the 1,000-square-foot roof of a nearby building. In the summer, the panels generate 60 percent more electricity than the super-insulated house needs.
The project, called the Hopewell Project, cost about $500,000 US ($633,299 AU) to plan and build."
