Solar Roadways (the company) to Build Solar Panel Parking Lot (+ Top Transportation Stories)

Solar Roadways complete a 12X12-foot solar road prototype last year, phase 1 of its development for the real world. “The prototype was made up of solar panels, heating elements, and a grid of wireless LED lights encased in durable glass that has the same traction as asphalt and doesn’t cause glare,” cnet reports. “The panels generate a total of 7.6 kilowatt hours of electricity per day that can be used to melt snow and ice, spell warnings for motorists, or be connected to weight sensitive panels that illuminate a crosswalk when activated.” Additionally, the solar road can be hooked up to a smart grid, transferring electricity generated to nearby homes, businesses, or electric cars.
