What if you could produce all the power you needed for your home - and for you electric car?

That would certainly change things for the better, wouldn't it?

Better for your pocketbook and personal independence and better for the environment.

So when are we going to get it?

The day after all the utility bonds are paid off I'm afraid, but maybe not.

MIT Professor Dan Nocera believes he can solve the world's energy problems with an Olympic-sized pool of water. Nocera and his research team have identified a simple technique for powering the Earth inexpensively—-by using the sun to split water and store energy—-and thus making the large-scale deployment of personalized solar energy possible.
