Hawaii Home Mag: Testing the Future

Apr 1, 2016

Entrepreneur Henk Rogers’ Oahu and Big Island homes prove that off-the-grid living can be both comfortable and full of modern conveniences.

The Rogers’ house on Tantalus looks like its neighbors’ homes in many ways: unassuming and welcoming, with views stretching from Diamond Head to the airport, a laundry room with an energy-efficient washer and dryer, and a full kitchen with a suite of appliances. And, like many local homes, it is multigenerational, with seven family members from three generations living together. But in the two-car garage, a sleek wall radiating a deep-blue glow hints at the power stored to keep this household running completely on the energy of the sun.
