I was browsing around and noticed that Solar Roadways has developed it's first prototype panel. For those that don't know about it the company is hoping to replace asphalt, which uses lots of oil to make, is expensive to maintain and repair, and only lasts ~7 years, with something made with more modern day technology. Basically their idea is a solar panel that can be driven on. It is heated (no more salt, sand etc. in the winter!) and contains LEDs so they don't even have to paint the road. The power from the solar panels can be to used power homes, and possibly entire cites or states, using the energy gathered from by the solar panel. This would greatly reduce the amount of new power plants and make power interruptions less and less frequent. Solar Roadways - News! Sorry I couldn't quite get the image thing figured out.
