Solar Roadways!

(4 comments)

UPDATE: Unfortunately, this idea seems to be refuted. Interesting thinking though, and hopefully some of this will work in some contexts. As far as I know there are plans to install it in a few places in the developers' hometown of Sandpoint, ID.

Here is a great example of the kind of forward thinking that this site promotes.  Solar Roadways!  Apparently this engineering couple has devised a material that can both be a good solid driving surface but also contain solar panels to generate power; heating elements to keep ice off in the winter;  and LED lights to warn of danger, change road lane configuration, etc.  It can be maintained much more easily than existing roadways.  Be sure to watch the video!
