Johnny Depp’s Green Island Paradise

Posted: November 2, 2010 in Uncategorized

Johnny Depp may be famous for his movies – and just being sexy in general – but these are not the only reasons that he has been on the radar these days.  Johnny Depp has (like many celebrities) been going green!

Back in 2005, Johnny Depp bought a 35-acre island in the Bahamas, which he nicknamed ‘F*ck Off Island’ – a place where he could avoid paparazzi and have some privacy.  To get there, you have to commute by boat.  The place is so private, it’s an ideal location to enjoy nature and just relax.  Depp told Vanity Fair in a recent interview, “I don’t think I’d ever seen any place so pure and beautiful.  You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It’s instant freedom.”

The actor has aspirations to keep his island paradise as lush, eco-friendly, and sustainable as possible, so using diesel generators to power the island’s electricity simply isn’t an option.

So he turns to Mike Strizki – an inventor that created the nation’s first solar- hydrogen house in New Jersey – without sacrificing any of the amenities he had in his 3,500 square-foot home. Depp wants Mike to build a grid-independent solar hydrogen system for his island, and – depending on the size of Depp’s home on the island – the cost is expected to run between $250,000-$500,000. Which – for someone who owns an island – isn’t bad for unlimited clean energy.

Depp is currently still third in line to receive his eco-friendly system, so before we start crossing our fingers hoping he will give the media a sneak peak of his home when it’s all done, we can watch Mike Strizki’s video about how solar-hydrogen homes work from his less exotic system at his New Jersey Home:
