The Solar Roadways project is working to pave roads with solar panels that you can drive on. The whole roadway network would act as a power grid to homes and businesses and would allow electric cars to charge up on the roadways. It would solve the world's energy problems.
Statistics: There are 25,000 square miles of road surfaces/parking lots/driveways in the lower 48 state of America. If all these were covered by solar panels, at only 15% efficiency, it would produce 3 times as much energy as is used in this area on an annual basis and almost enough to power the entire world!
This is HUGE and could solve our world's energy problems completely. No more fighting over dwindling finite fuel resources. Instead, sustainable energy for EVERYONE!
This fantastic idea needs to be publicised and supported at a global level to get it moving and that's where you come in.
