Solar Roads

So exiting! We are thrilled with what the future brings. SOLAR ROADS, made out of recycled glass, is proven to be better than asphalt and concrete.

The hexagonal panels look fragile but can withstand a 250,000 lb load. When the panels are damaged, they take a few minutes to be replaced. LED lights in the panels can be programmed to change in order to alert drivers of a pedestrian crossing, deer/other animals or an accident, which could save thousands of lives. If all the roads in the US were solar roads, it would produce over 3 times the electricity needed for the US.
