We already heard about Solar Roads, which actually reduce the usage of polluting fossil fuels and produce non-polluting solar energy. Now the American Department of Energy(DoE) try to make a sample solar roads, so they handed over a $100,000 contract to Solar Roadways, which is just enough to build a prototype of the “First Ever Solar Road panel“. The 12×12-foot would cost around $7,000 panels could theoretically be embedded into roads, and when shined upon, could pipe good, clean electricity straight into the grid. It also designed to alert drivers using LED lights to upcoming accidents or changes in road conditions. So lets wait to see whats the result o the first solar road.
