    •  I saw my first in 1970. (0+ / 0-)

      Passive front with plants, giant battery for the refrigerator, etc. The technology has been suppressed. Texaco bought the patent for the EV1 battery.

      BUT, it may be now that a retiree with some life savings could get a better return on investment from a solar combo than safe bonds!
