Solar Roadways Set to Build First Solar Parking Lot

The federal government has previously given the start-up a $100,000 grant and they also received $50,000 from GE's Ecomagination Challenge that allowed the company to fully develop its 12 foot x 12 foot solar panel. The panels contain LED lights that could display road warnings and directions, while embedded heating elements could also help keep snow and ice from gathering on roads. Underground wires will connect the panels to the grid to power street lights and even nearby buildings.
