Resourceful Guy Builds Solar House, Solar Power, Solar Car

Dandelion Salad

May 25, 2009

Peak Moment 145: John Weber’s Boise, Idaho house with south-facing windows rarely needs heat and never air conditioning. Meet a man who has built a passive-solar house with solar electric power and solar hot water; plus a solar-powered electric car — and who rides a bike! With photovoltaics tied to the grid, he sells surplus electricity back to the power company. John shows how he converted his “Sun Car” from a junked Festiva to all-electric, with added solar panels on top to extend its range. Ride with us – and hear how quiet it is!

  1. People powered activism, I love it. We can give up hoping that the Big 3 are going to supply us with affordable electric automobiles, they did that once and ended up crushing them in the Arizona desert. Cheers to this guy and his group of friends that are not waiting around for things to change, they are making the change themselves. Really inspiring stuff!

    Also “Renewable Energy is Homeland Security”…that’s a slogan I will have to put on my website! LOL Brilliant.
