I was reading the news a few of days ago and found this article about a couple who’ve come up with a way to resurface roadways with solar cells that can generate electricity while keeping the roads clear of ice.
It is a very interesting idea and I think it would be worth exploring, although I think it would be more realistic to cover parking lots and generate power. For example, to supply a shopping mall with power than trying to cover over roadways.
I wonder what the cost is and if this idea is even feasible. I imagine the cost of the cells must be high but I think it’s worth exploring.
Take a look at this video. What do you think?
