Mike Stritzki had a dream and, as a tenacious engineer, he was determined to realize it with his own hands.  Thus was born the first "hydrogen house" in the United States, designed and built in pastoral Hopewell, New Jersey. An astonishing technical achievement lies in the bucolic setting: a house with all the modern conveniences, but run entirely by the sun. Mike makes solar energy and stores what he needs in a battery bank in the garage. He uses the excess power to crack water, liberating hydrogen that he stores for those days when the sun is unavailable. He uses the hydrogen to power a fuel cell that not only runs his car, but supplies all the energy he needs for his home, all year round. And then, of course, there are his hydrogen-powered toys.
