But I just found out about a home on Stuart Island in the San Juans that has been up and running with an offgrid solar-hydrogen-fuel cell system since 2007!

STUART ISLAND, WA – Living on an island is fun and it’s many people’s dream, but there are distinct downsides when it comes to civilization’s amenities city folk take for granted:

“We were tired of hauling banks of 120 lb. batteries to our remote, off-the-grid island home,” says the opening sentence of the home page of the “Stuart Island Energy Initiative” website. It describes an ongoing three-year-old retrofit of a splendid 1,800 sq. ft., 6-room summer vacation home with a completely independent solar-hydrogen power system on this small 5-by-1 mile island off Washington’s coast - in fact, closer to British Columbia, some 15 miles from Victoria.
