Meet Mike Strizki’s Hydrogen House

Mike Strizki has an extraordinary house.

His house is powered entirely by solar panels, which are installed nearly everywhere; he has roughly a hundred panels on his rooftop, ground, and mobile appliances all around his 12-acre compound. Since 2006, he stopped purchasing electricity from the grid.

He also houses 11 hydrogen tanks in the nearby Hopewell woods that can store enough energy during winter.

When Hurricane Sandy hit, Strizki’s house continued to power on while his neighbors’ all went out, even those with solar panels but no storage capacity.

He notes, however, that the upfront cost of the solar and storage systems, which range from $60,000 to $90,000 even after rebates and credits, is not something most households can afford.

Strizki has sold about $4 million worth of the systems designed to endure harsh weather, but wealth is not what he’s after. What he is doing, he says, is for his future generations.
