    solar road

    Seems it would be better and cheaper to just do all the roofs. There already made. Just need to be installed.

    Roads vs roofs

    I wonder if we won't have to do both. I don't know the likely future electric load of the US, nor how many square feet of highway would be needed to generate that load. But we could end up having solar cells on our clothing, car and house roofs, parking lots etc. Then we can use oil just for plastic production. And did you see in the video how a side benefit to this is that many landfills could be cleaned up to harvest material for this new technology. Seems like a win-win-win.
