I've been kicking around design ideas for my future home for years. Something I want, both for self-sufficiency and for doing as much as I can to help with environmental issues is a self-powered house. With the combination of solar or wind power and a residential fuel cell to supplement, you could actually sell electricity back to the power company. Current estimates are that a fuel cell will pay for itself in 4 years.
