Tough to the Finish...

'Cause it runs on spinach (I got my Popeye reference out up front)... Treehugger provides more details on the plan that won the C2C Home competition (which I blogged about here), including the fact that "spinach proteins are sandwiched in glass, using chlorophyll to turn sunlight into power for the house." The final question on TH's post is important, though: "It does seem cool beyond belief, but we’d love to know how it stacks up against more conventional photovoltaics in terms of cost, output, reliability, and that sort of thing."
