Are Solar Powered Roads The Wave Of The Future? [Video]

Solar roadYoutube

Are Solar roadways the wave of the future? Its inventors think so. Scott & Julie Brusaw developed the technology in 2006, with support from the Federal Highway Administration. KXAN reports, “Solar Freakin’ Roadways” are made using largely recycled materials. The road is constructed of hexagonal solar panels that can be replaced when damaged, rather than resurfacing the highway. Conduits run alongside the road, housing power lines, fiber optic, high speed internet, eliminating the need for above ground poles that can be damaged during hurricanes. They’re heated, eliminating icy roadways. They can be outfitted with sensors, warning drivers of hazards ahead. Last summer, while on vacation, I nearly hit a deer while returning from the grocery store. If you’ve never seen a car that’s been in a collision with a deer, I can tell you it’s not pretty.
