Fantastic idea! Ever ask yourself why nothing like this ever happens?
It will take an act of god to upset the status quo.
They've had solar paint for years, try to go buy some.

That's an excellent idea. yay.gif The initial cost is tremendous, but it would be an interesting experiment. I have a hard time believing it could take the load of heavy traffic for a very long time so they may require frequent maintenance. I'm also doubtful those would work here where the sun is very low over the horizon for only 4 hours a day in the winter, when you need a warm road the most.

I'm however still waiting for that solar paint I heard about 30 years ago, so I'm not expecting anything anytime soon... bored.gif

wave.gif Wolf Pup. Alternative energies is one of my interests and, yes, we do need more solar technology around the world, but the way it is now too rigid, expensive - it is doubtful the solar roadway thingie will take off. Here's an interesting vid explaing tha the shift to doability may be in nanotechnology using moth eye and antennae design.
