NextEnergy's VP of Business & Technology, Jim Saber, has announced the NextHome project, a direct current based home that generates and runs on renewable DC power. The home will be delivered to the NextEnergy building soon, and Nextek Power Systems will install a DC power network system. In Phase 2 (fall 2013), we will begin integration of appliances, consumer electronics, lighting and control systems, solar-photovoltaic power, communications network, smart meter, vehicle charging technologies and more. On completion, the home will be available for viewing by the public. For the complete story, see Mr. Saber’s blog on the NextEnergy site.
