Who Killed the (self-contained) Electric House?

Once upon a time, there was going to be this:

GE MicroGen say that HomeGen 7000 can provide 100% of a homes energy needs whilst producing less than half the amount of carbon dioxide per kWh produced by traditional coal- and oil-burning power plants.

The "time" was the late 90's, and then....it disapppeared. I haven't found a website referring to this fuel cell with a date newer than 2001. GE's own website, http://www.ge-energy.com/index.jsp , has no results when searching their website for "homegen 7000".

It looks like the dreaded Y2K disaster that never was took aim at just one thing, and the HomeGen got hit, as it is as gone as a Soviet past premier from the history books...almost.

GM did its infamous number on the EV-1, and it looks to me like a very similar fate has been met by the HomeGen. If anybody has a lead on this thing, or how it died (or lives in secrecy, if it does), kindly jump in here and tell us the story of "Who Killed the Electric House?".

What happens when the news media stops covering news objectively - and instead becomes a source of very specific opinions that serve a very narrow agenda?

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
