I also wrote with an update on that blog: "My long term goal was to have no electric bill or energy bills at all. (No electric bill was accomplished in 2014 and still waiting in 2019 for an affordable NASA Fuel Cell that sent Americans to the moon several times and back to eliminate my natural gas consumption)"
Well, the wait may come to an end soon, but there is a trick involved...
Many companies have been working on Hydrogen Fuel Cells, but the various fluidity of production methods and logistics are very costly. Nevertheless, there have been breakthroughs, yet none remove our servitude to monthly bills. All the companies really don't want us making our own Hydrogen fuel, on site, and on demand, for cost savings and safety. These companies want to sell us the Hydrogen fuel, one way or another.
The World's Energy Freedom, as I have been writing about for decades, will only come when greed steps aside so we can have hydrogen fuel cells in our homes, cars, and business. The World's Energy Freedom answer would work with a system that collects FREE rain water (a vehicle will have a water tank) and as needed, the membrane component, will separate the hydrogen molecules from the freely collected rain water (not from natural gas or gasoline). This would be done with FREE electric power created from the Sun with a few solar panels. The hydrogen molecules from the freely collected water (H2O) will run the fuel cell that makes FREE electricity to power the house, office and our car. The byproduct is water. A small battery backup will suffice in place of the solar panels on cloudy days and nighttime in order to operate the membrane component that separates the two hydrogen molecules from the one oxygen molecule in water. The electricity made by the fuel cell will always be recharging the battery.
The photo from Hyperion, shows their fuel cell in the upper right hand corner and Hyperion's sports car on the left. One of the Links to their website is as follows: Hyperion
Below is an image of their refueling station... And that is the monthly expense trick. The hydrogen is compressed, cooled, and stored within, so we can buy from them.
