Solar Roadways: Energy and Transportation Solution in One

Solar highways could produce 3 times the amount of energy we need here in the U.S.

There are 28,000 square miles of roadways spread across the 48 continental states. With the cost of traditional paving materials going up and their availability going down, innovator Scott Brusaw sees solar highways as the solution to several energy and transportation problems.

To learn more about this fascinating project and how Brusaw is working to solve the complex issues involved, see Part 1 of this two-part article at

  1. Excellent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff
    previous to and you’re just extremely great. I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you are stating and the way in which you say it.

  5. Solar Roadway is a wonderful idea. This concept is producing power, eliminate snow removal, LED lighting, cable and waste water management and more. Check out their site at solar roadways.

  6. The idea that we could exclusively use solar power in any form, without some method of energy storage, is just looney. That doesn’t mean we can’t use more of it, just that even if the U.S. could swap out all it’s pavement for solar panels next weekend, evening peak electricity load and night-time base load would still have to come from somewhere else – hydro, coal, gas, nuclear, wind.

    I could just about buy the idea of ‘solar railways’, but as solar power it’s still a worse idea than solar shingles.
