Solar roadway could power U.S., says designer

Solar Roadways, the futuristic project thought up by an Idaho engineer about whom we first wrote more than two years ago, has a new short film out on Vimeo.

As you’ll see if you watch the three-minute clip above, Scott Brusaw wants to transform America’s roadways from asphalt monuments to oil into glass-covered solar panels that will power electric vehicles and, ideally, the entire U.S. electric grid.

Sound far-fetched?


But Brusaw and his team promise to have a working prototype parking lot completely covered in glass encased solar panels up and running by the fall of this year.

We’re definitely looking forward to seeing that and we hope you are too 🙂
