Have you ever even thought of solar powered roads?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Wed Jul 21, 2010 6:55 am

I know it's something that never crossed MY mind!

It evidently crossed someones mind enough that solar powered roads are being built and tested.

Solar Powered Roads Can Collect Electricity,
Melt Snow, and Wake Sleepy Drivers

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]An Idaho man envisioned "electric roads" way
back in his early childhood. Now, in his own state-of-the-art
electronics lab, he is building the panels for a solar roadway he hopes
will make petroleum-based asphalt obsolete.








More information is in this article...

Do you think this can really work and be feasible?

Sounds like a good idea! I imagine it would be expensive to build, but it would more than pay for itself in the long run, if it works as envisioned. One question I have is whether it would stand up to the wear and tear of heavy traffic over the years.

According to that article, these roads could supply energy to homes, charge cars while driving on them and maybe even supply broadband. While it all sounds great, I am not sure it is such a good idea to put so much dependence for things all in one spot. Kind of like having cable, internet and phone through one company.. when one goes, they all go.
