Solar roadways... No longer a concept, it's real!
SAGLE, Idaho (Derek Drake) -- They're calling it the roadway of the future, and the U.S. Department of Transportation funded prototypes that are now finished.
Watch the video above for more information about the potential of this technology.
Creators Julie and Scott Brusaw (who received his Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Dayton in 1988) launched their IndieGoGo campaign on April 22 and since launching, they've raised more than $1.2 million. Their goal was $1 million.
The campaign is still open to donations until May 31, 2014, so there's still time to donate if you're interested in seeing this idea grow into something much bigger.
What do you think of the idea? Do you think it would work? Would it be a way to cut down on America's dependency on fossil fuels and foreign oil? Weigh in on the conversation on our Facebook page.
