Imagine technology that replaces all roadways, parking lots, sidewalks, driveways, tarmacs, bike paths and outdoor recreation surfaces with solar panels... 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?
