Solar Bike Paths Are Here (or there)


Pardon the annoying video, but the description of what a solar roadway is, how it works, and it’s larger social potential is well described. Fittingly, one of the first solar roadways just went down in the Netherlands, as a 70 meter bike path. Yes, bikes leading the way, of course. It’s an expensive technology, but if the funding can be found, the returns down the line will continue to expand practical usage on a larger scale. This article at Collective Evolution gives a good summary of the first solar roadway now in use.

    Good ol’ American Technology, or so I believe.

    That aspect needs to be highlighted more.
