Roads are collecting heat anyway - why not collect the power and make the roads into an electric grid? The technology to do this already exists!
Covering the 25,000 square miles of roads, parking lots and driveways in the US with solar panels would produce 3 times as much power than the country is using.
"Solar Roadways" proposes to pave roads with solar panels that you can drive on - an intelligent pavement that generates power and pays for itself.
