Solar Roadways

Solar Roadways

The Solar Roadway is a series of structurally engineered solar panels that idea that will replace petroleum-based asphalt roads with Solar Road Panels that collect and store solar energy to be used by our homes and businesses. The renewable energy replaces the need for the current fossil fuels used for the generation of electricity, cutting greenhouse gases literally in half.

Solar Roadways are constructed using three layer system. The surface layer is tough enough to handle vehicles and weather systems, while the he upper layer is translucent and allows the sunlight pass by. The middle layer will consist of large array of solar collecting cells. This middle electronic layer will be fitted with microprocessors that will control lighting, communications, monitoring etc. The third base layer will distribute power collected by the electronics layer to the units connected to the Solar Roadways.
