Idaho takes another step toward roads paved with solar panels

The government is once again bequeathing Solar Roadways with some capital to pursue its vision, this time giving the company $750,000 to replace its own parking lot with the paneled blocks, which include an array of photovoltaic and heating elements, as well as wireless LED lights all protected by glare-free glass that offers the same traction as asphalt. This will allow Solar Roadways to monitor its baby ’round the clock, and to see if the technology can live up to its grand potential.
