The Solar-Hydrogen Solution Has Arrived In New Jersey
Posted by keelynet on April 1, 2009
This is one way to go that could make heat and electricity…use solar or wind to generate and compress the hydrogen, then burn it as heat or to produce steam to drive a turbine and power your house.
“Mike Strizki’s invention, a system that can be used by most residential homes to generate energy and store the excess as hydrogen gas, has the potential to help turn millions of American homes into fully self-sustaining power plants, each one capable of producing hydrogen to heat homes, provide electricity, and fuel cars. In part this is an “inventor’s story.”
The system itself is truly ingenious, using off-the shelf technology. Electrolysis, which uses water and electricity to separate oxygen and hydrogen, is a 19th century invention; solar panels were invented at Bell Labs in 1954; fuel cells were invented in the 1970s; and the hydrogen is stored in propane tanks. But more importantly, this is a business story and a public policy story of dramatic proportions. And it is happening here in the State of New Jersey that is second only to California in the amount of installed solar power!” – Source
