Turning Homes Into Self-Sustaining Energy Producers
"Metropolis's 2009 Next Generation competition received scores of entries, from which this year's jury chose one winner and eight runners-up to be recognized in the May issue of the magazine. But there were far more than just nine good ideas in the bunch. The judges also selected 12 "notables"-entries that, for various reasons, fell short of the final selection, but that the jurors felt still deserved recognition.
This week: Emilio Ramirez's proposal, Feeding the Addiction: The Emergence of the Single Family Power Plant, which envisions a low-cost, renewable energy production and delivery system that could turn homes and businesses into self-sustaining energy producers."
