Mike Strizki is a man with a plan: break free from the grid! In 2006, Strizki converted his home to run on solar-hydrogen power, including a hydrogen vehicle fueling station.
Mike served as Project Engineer for over 16 years with the Office of Research and Technology in the New Jersey Department of Transportation, now he spends his time coming up with alternative energy solutions that just might change the world.
He built his home in Hopewell, New Jersey to be his flagship prototype for his company, Strizki Systems, which designs and installs clean and renewable solar hydrogen systems for homes and businesses. He says his “Hydrogen House Project is an effort to finally rid the world of the economic, social, and environmental injustices of fossil fuels.”
The low-pressure hydrogen system installed in 2006 splits water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen by way of electrolysis powered by a 21-kilowatt solar panel array. The stored hydrogen gas is used for heating and cooking in the Hydrogen House, and provides electricity by way of a hydrogen fuel cell. The only emissions the system produces are chemically pure water and medical grade oxygen. It is 100 percent clean and renewable energy.
