What if we put solar panels on the road to collect solar energy? This would generate enough electricity to recharge vehicles. Moreover, considering the environment, it could cure global warming! Covering US roads means both a lot of manufacturing and a lot of jobs! Solar Roadway project was awarded a 750.000 dollars grant by the Federal Highway Administration.

    Most Useless idea. Will solar panels withstand the weight of the vehicles? There were solar panels arrays on the side of the road in a country. If it has to be replicated in developing countries, dust is a big problem. Already the efficiency of solar cell at present is low, dust will make it(unless cleaned regularly),Solar PV will be uneconomic. Ideas always will be crazy but in practice useless.
