The Solar Roofpod is a piece of urban infrastructure which captures the most underutilized energy, the sun, and utilizes it through innovative engineering systems to feed power to a single pod, whole buildings, and the city's power grid.
The Roofpod is more than just a house, more than an energy source or a garden; it is a piece of urban infrastructure, part of an integrated system to simultaneously address the challenges of electrical energy production, heating and cooling,... Read More

The government should give grants to people that have their automobiles converted to LPG. It now costs about $1000 - 2000 to have a car converted. Most of this is profit for the service station doing the conversion. It only costs about $100 for... Read More
I envision solar panels that would overlap and interlock to be used as roofing tiles. They would interconnect using integrated connectors instead of wires or cables. These tiles would be made in standard sizes and shapes for easy removal and... Read More
