Solar Roadways: Pathways to the Future

One of my favorite green engineering projects is, solar-powered roadways, a project Solar Roadways has been working on for years.  Coming to a town near you?

When it comes to figuring a move into the green future, it comes down to infrastructure.  The concept behind Solar Roadways is the most resourceful out there in the marketplace beyond rooftop photo-voltaic panels, which have improved in the last few years to provide seamless appearance and efficiency. Still, more fine-tuning is needed with them.  It surprises me to think that local governments own a lot of real estate with rooftops, but they have not gotten into the business of green energy?  It would generate money without coming from parking fines or other ways that hit the pocket.

Solar Roadways provides energy flowing in and out of your home through street panels made of glass.  The engineering of materials is becoming more fine-tuned as time provides the company to advance.  Eliminating fossil fuels used for not only the gas in our cars, but the pavement the roads are laid. 

Check out the video below and hear it for yourselves.


With the recent advent of DWP's largest urban rooftop solar program in the nation, now buying energy from customers, we may might see a stronger push into greener eco-design engineering.  Unfortunately, I have to point out some of the stingey moves DWP is implementing in rolling out the program to buy back solar power.  Up until 2016, DWP will pay customers 17 cents per kilowatt hour for energy produced on their own equipment, up to 100 megawatts of solar power.  Applications can be submitted for DWP's Solar Incentive Program

  1. Denmark is another country that has gone in the direction of prom dresses 2013 solar and wind energy in a big way. And Denmark is certainly not as "sunny" as much of the US. Interestingly, the state of Texas is big into wind energy and probably into solar as well. I guess what is okay for Texas is not okay for the rest of us, at least according to the oil people. And Fox News.

  2. foundation of the feudal patriarchal system, the feudal forces bridal wedding dress still rampant, the masses of the people are still so ignorant, "inherent spiritual civilization, in fact, did not republican word buried, only full already withdrew slightly different and earlier." It is like Adger painting round circle, around a week and then returned to its starting point. So we said, a was as a radical revolutionary
