, based in Idaho, designs energy-generating roads made of modular solar panels covered in tempered glass . Inside the modules are microprocessors that communicate with other panels, a control center, and even with cars driving on the road. LED lights in the panels provide street lines and signs, and there are even heating elements so snow and ice don’t build up on the solar panels.
