Discussions Discussion Green Efforts for the Community
Sara LUSA, Oct. 9, 2013

Years ago, when the phrase ‘global warming’ began gaining popularity, researchers and engineers, along with U.S. Senator Mike Crapo, started looking at the idea of solar roadways. These roadways would replace the concrete and asphalt roads that communities have today. The roads would be made up of glass solar panels that would absorb solar energy, providing power for surrounding communities. These solar panels could make up highways, toll roads, freeways, neighborhoods, and much more.

    That would be a great way to take advantage of the light energy that hits our planet each day. I read an interesting fact today that stated that solar panels would be able to meet human's energy demands if they covered 1% of Earths surface. Putting solar panels in our roads would really help make renewable energy the one and only energy source.

    That would be great! It's the first time I've heard of this, but thinking about it, it also seems like the Maglev Trains. It carries more people and is more efficient with speed and use solar energy. But I these trains are only found in China, South Korea, and Japan.
