Johnny Converting His Caribbean Home to Global Heating

In New Jersey, inventor and long-time hydrogen developer Mike Strizki is now showing visitors his house in Hopewell converted to grid-independent solar hydrogen operation (including hydrogen for his fuel cell car), the subject of a long article in the New York Times magazine in May 2007. It’s pricey: the conversion cost about $500,000, but his next project in the Cayman Islands is expected to cost less than half of that.

His third client appears to be actor Johnny Depp who wants to convert his Caribbean island home to Strizki’s system, and Strizki says several others are in the pipeline. Other solar hydrogen houses have been built or converted on Long Island; near Wiscasset, ME; on Stuart Island, WA; in Indonesia, and, decades ago, in Freiburg, Germany, and Switzerland.
