Holy moly, why isn’t everyone and their mom talking about this?!
This isn’t drastically new technology — merely traditional solar panels that have been made to support heavy loads that won’t break under tons of weight (literally tons).
Watch this quick video on how these panels could realistically replace every paved surface that receives direct sunlight: roads, parking lots, airports — the list goes on.
The panels collect energy which can be harnessed to substitute fossil fuels. On top of that, the heat collected can be repurposed to melt icy roads, eliminating the negative environmental impact of salting roads.
First solar roadways, next hover crafts. It’s just a matter of time.
