Solar Roadways? Cool concept!

Solar FREAKIN’ Roadways!
The brilliant minds behind Solar Roadways published a video detailing their world-changing project earlier this month, but its language didn’t really grab anyone’s attention.
This new one from creator Scott Brusaw, however, most definitely does not make this mistake.
“Solar FREAKIN’ Roadways!” is filled with passionate excitement and specifically targets young adult minds while explaining the capabilities of this invention, which may seriously be the key to the next stage of human evolution.
All Brusaw’s need is a little cash and we can kiss economic woes, pollution and a whole lot of car accidents goodbye forever.

They can go anywhere and connect to power and data cables, saving us massive amounts of money while making the world a healthier and safer place at the same time.
According to Imgur, Solar Roadways will not only be able to charge electronic cars, but will also pay for themselves, generating enough electricity to power homes and businesses connected through nearby driveways and parking lots.
They can hold trucks weighing 250,000 pounds, cut greenhouse gas emissions by 75 percent and maintain enough heat to remain completely free of ice and snow.
Solar Roadways have been tested for traction and impact resistance by civil engineering labs all across the US, proving to be just as efficient in terms of travel as a regular road.
The Brusaws have received two phases of funding from the US Federal Highway Administration, but still need a lot more money to put their world-changing vision into effect.
You can donate on Solar Roadways’ Indiegogo page. As of this morning, $143,497 has been donated towards the goal of $1,000,000.
