This Futuristic Idea Is Cool,
Regardless Of Where You
Stand On Climate Change

Independent Journal Review, by Kevin Boyd

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/24/2014 9:40:18 PM

(Video) There is a company called Solar Roadways that is proposing to replace all of America’s roads, bike paths, sidewalks, and pavement with solar panels. According to The Blaze, the video has gone viral with over a million views. Here’s what the website says this company can do: Solar Roadways is a modular paving system of solar panels that can withstand the heaviest of trucks (250,000 pounds). These Solar Road Panels can be installed on roads, parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, bike paths, playgrounds… literally any surface under the sun. They pay for themselves primarily through the generation of electricity, which

Whatever...

They´d receive my wholehearted support IF they can prove that the roads will not develop potholes.

Which are...at the moment...the scourge of our area.

I feel like I´m in a video game dodging barrels tossed at random in front of the car.

Like to see how they handle the issue of dirt on the roadway.
Roads are filthy. They may look clean when you at e passing over at 70, but a typical road surface is covered with soot, oil, dirt. How is the sunlight to get through?

One more scam looking for a government handout before as quietly as possible going bankrupt without building a single solar panel.

How do you know?

Well, like all the other schemes to replace conventional power generation, this scam like all the others fails to mention how they will store their power at night. End of story.

Okay, I was going to point out the problem with the freeze/thaw cycle and potholes, and the dirt issue as well. Any major roadway will be in the shade for a good deal of the time from the traffic on the road. I´m doubtful there are enough rare-earth elements - given that name for a reason - available to make something of this scale. A good portion of the US doesn´t receive enough sunlight to make solar panels on the home that practical, so why would roads be any better? Angling the panels to maximize sunlight received? All in all, I´m skeptical.

I agree with previous posters as to viability , etc. I will differ in opinion to state that this is a pretty nifty idea. The inevitable fly in the ointment is who, exactly is going to pay for development implementation of this?

If the product they are hawking is as good as they say and they have overcome the problems of dirt, down time the periodic interuptions in power production etc. etc.etc. then the product should not require any government help. I´d even be willing to give them the use of the highway rights of way in exchange for the upkeep.

But, more than likely this will require not only considerable taxpayer money its also going to result in higher electric bills because its not as cheap as coal and gas.

If it would be cheap enough to use in my drive and it would pay for air conditioning in the summer I´d buy it. But if it costs so much my return on investment is measured in decades then I´ll pass.

Sounds too good to be true. What does that tell you?

There´s one thing that all of these "green" energy projects have in common, aside from huge government subsidies and higher energy prices...felt all the way throughout the economy. And we´re talking wind, solar, ethanol, tidal energy in Passamaquoddy Bay, Maine, etc. Can you guess what it is?

They are all BS projects, not ready for prime time, foisted upon us by heavily vested interests who willingly ignore the cheap energy available to us (and developing countries) in fossil fuels and the clean energy available in nuclear.

We are regularly sucked into these fruitless discussions by the global warmists whose message and methods we detest.

I really don´t see how this could be done economically. The flimsy panels now in use already cost about as much as the electricity they´ll generate over their useful lifetimes, and road-ready panels will have to be much, much stronger. Not only would they have to support the weight of fully-loaded trucks, but they´d also need to be able to resist abrasion to a degree that only diamond or corundum (colorless sapphire) is capable of in order to allow enough light to pass through to the doped silicon elements. This doesn´t even address the logistic issues involved with constructing a road composed of prefabricated panels and wiring. In my opinion, such a project would quickly devolve into another Solyndra-like environmentalist money incinerator.

I saw an article about this on a tech website. Someone there ran the numbers for this. The people behind it state that the solar panels in it will melt snow and ice. The numbers say that it will stay clear for snow falls up to 2-3 inches, as long as it had 8 hours of sun before the snow fall begins.

The other likely problems with this idea have been covered by other posters here.

No different than the nutty liberal professor who want a law passed to require all roofs in America to be painted white. The hoax called global cooling, global warming, climate change, climate disruption has the left in a hissy fit since hardly anyone believes in it. As a result schemes like this one will continue to be floated as "cool" and workable. Absolute nonsense.

I see three problems with this:

1. Are these surfaces composed of materials that provide sufficient traction to be considered safe?
2. Can they be kept clean economically enough to work at a reasonable efficiency?
3. Are the materials cheap enough and available enough to make this project worthwhile? This could actually be the big ´killer´ to the idea, because the materials to make a solar panel aren´t cheap, and I expect that could be even more so for these little items.

Love the idea and believe that at some point in time will be workable.

How about trying this out at shopping centers and malls first, where there are acres and acres of largely empty parking spots.

I´ve looked into solar power for home use. To completely power my home from solar, I would need 80 panels, approximately 1500 square feet. At a cost of 40,000 for materials alone. And that´s a Grid Tie system with no battery backup. It would take 13 years for it to pay for itself with panels that have a 10 year warranty.

If it works as well as their promotional video, this pair will make Bill Gate´s fortune look puny by comparison.

I want some of that stuff! The poster´s concerns about rare earth ingredients seems like the biggest concern to me, and most of that is mined in China, right?

Ooh yeah cool idea! We´re all about the cool. And if it will support a 250,000 lb. truck, way cool!

But how many? And for how long? Idealists never - EVER - consider the practical realities of their cool ideas. For this to actually work and truly take us into the future, something else will have to give.... probably our heaviest vehicles - first. Then our personal cars. Bikes only!

Not a new idea! I read about this 5 or 6 years ago!!!

I say start small, and if it works, find a way to make it affordable. New ideas like this are wonderful; it´s this kind of innovation that gets us from where we are to a better place.

And for all the negative, doomsday, the-sky-is-falling Eeyores posting here on Lucianne,(really? go pound sand--THAT would be more worthwhile than your incessant negativism) I´m sure the company or companies working on this have thought of all the problems you brought up . . . . and many others.

WASHINGTON — The White House likes to use a phrase of tingling adventure to describe the president’s recent penchant for wandering the country talking to people: “The bear is loose.” There are three problems with this unbearable metaphor: Barack Obama is not in captivity, he’s not a bear, and he’s not loose.

President Barack Obama sent thrills up the collective legs of his supporters (and a few journalists) last week when he quoted Martin Scorsese’s The Departed during a campaign-style event. “I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy,” Obama said, referring to congressional Republicans. “It is lonely me just doing stuff,” the president continued. “I’d love it if the Republican did stuff, too.” It is worth noting that the president resorted to this bravado while he was ignoring calls from members of his party to see the border with his own eyes.

Park crews had to close and repair the 3.3-mile loop road that takes visitors past White Dome Geyser, Great Fountain Geyser and Firehole Lake. Blame it on the Yellowstone Volcano. Yellowstone National Park -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- sits atop one of the world´s largest volcanoes, and some of the thermal spots have damaged the popular Firehole Lake Drive.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
