Solar Roadways Spark Public’s Imagination

“It just makes sense! So I want to do what I can to make others see the simplicity in this and the good that can come of embracing this technology.”

Solar roadways are the brainchild of a husband and wife team from Idaho, who have spent the last decade developing the technology. They launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign on Earth Day, April 22, with the goal of raising $1 million to take their vision from “from prototype to production.” The couple, Scott and Julie Brusaw, want to manufacture interlocking hexagonal panels that could replace asphalt with roads made of solar cells.
