Solar Roadways: A visionary road surface

Scott Brusaw of northern Idaho is an environmental visionary who is aiming to build roadways using his solar roadway design of prefabricated glass solar panels embedded with photovoltaic solar cells and LED lights. The panels would be engineered to withstand the forces of traffic, that is, anything up to 40 tons of traversing truck.

Scott Brusaw outlines his entire concept and design within the the video here including taking into account the possibility of making drivers aware of ensuing road conditions ahead. All up its an amazing idea, not only does it get the energy from the roads, it opens up the opportunity to run power alongside the roadways, the power can go straight into the grid.
