How can you imagine a roadway paving in future?
Future is already here! Imagine if you can use solar energy to transform into electricity? It may sound not new. Well, what if you can use a road paving as a solar power battery? This is what happens today. Without any exaggeration, the technology is not widely used as it is still in process of developing. But we can see that first prototypes of such solar roadways works and shows the huge list of its advantages.
Nowadays, there is a technology which allows you to pave a road with solar power panels, instead of typical asphalt. This type of road has a lot of benefits in comparison to classic asphalt:
This is one of the main functions of solar roadway panels. They can serve as a source of energy for municipal needs or as a private source of electricity.
These panels are blocks in shapes of hexagons and can be easily replaced if needed because they have a modular structure.
Panels produce electricity, what means that such road made of these panels has a real return on investment because electricity can be sold.
Solar roadway not only functional but also look very futuristic and interesting. It totally changes the look of the road.
Provides “homes” for cables
Another interesting feature of the solar road is that you can hide all the necessary cables in those modular panels.
Panels of solar roadway don`t need any difficult maintenance or paint works. All you have to do – install them and generate electricity.
Where can we use such future paving?
Private residential paving
The concept of using paving as a source of electricity generated from solar energy opens new opportunities and brings innovative ideas to the world. Let`s see if this will become the typical material to build roads in future…
