(and you should) Put panels on your roof.Want solar parking lots? Put panels OVER the parking lot.Both of these are easy, cost effective, and not experimental.Solar roadways is an expensive pipedream distraction, not a solution. Re: Yep (Score: 1) by email@example.com on 2014-07-09 18:08 (#2D5) There is a stupidly long video on youtube about the infeasibility of solar roadways. Although there are a few good points, I'm not really sure why the video goes on to poo-poo the idea for 30 minutes. Or why the dissenters insist that it's a project to convert every inch of asphalt in the world to solar instead of just a few private parking lots. Or why they don't give constructive criticism instead of essentially calling the creators idiots.Regardless, I can see why people have such a negative view on the solar roadway fund-raiser after sitting through that video.
