No more useless concrete or asphalt or concrete sitting there baking in the sun needing to be repaved -- filling with pot holes that ruin the axle alignment on your 'sweet ride, Bro!'

Solar Roadways have arrived!

These smart, microprocesing, interlocking, hexagonal solar units have the ability to power our cars, homes, and businesses with a sustainable energy source and no pollution -- with a minimal carbon footprint.

An abundance of clean energy with added features that include: heating elements to stay snow/ice free, LEDs to make road lines and signage, and attached Cable Corridor to store and treat stormwater and provide a "home" for power and data cables.

Are you ready for the future? How do you think your neighborhoods, cities, counties and states will respond to this initiative? Which state(s) do you think will be early adopters?

Amanda, I was just reading about this new technology not too long ago. Sounds like an amazing advancement! The videos on the website you linked are very informative.

Hi Amanda, What you see is probably closer than we think. The earths resources are being used at a rapid pace, which will cause a void if we don't find alternative power soon. The Earth could just cave in on itself.
