Solar panels you can drive on – What if a road could power your electric car? This is what solar panels embedded into highways could look like.
Future roads – Solar Roadways co-founders Julie and Scott Brusaw stand on their prototype parking lot. Their idea calls for solar-powered roadways made of durable textured glass.
Power couple – Solar Roadways co-founders Julie and Scott Brusaw first came up with the idea in the mid-2000s. The Idaho-based couple are now raising funds to gear up for production.
Riding on solar – The roadway is safe to drive on, even in large vehicles. The aim is to replace Asphalt roads with solar panels that can support cars.
Weather proof – This invention could allow roads to be quickly cleared of snow. The panels on the right are switched on, and the left ones switched off.
