Solar roadways may be the answer to our energy problems and heck, it’ll even look cool! The U.S. Department of Energy has funded a prototype of $100 K to test these roadways!

“The 12- x 12-foot panels could theoretically be embedded into roads, and when shined upon, could pipe good, clean electricity straight into the grid. Heck, they could even boast LEDs in order to alert drivers to upcoming accidents or changes in road conditions.” – Darren Murph, Engadget

Bet you Kuwait can generate enough energy to power itself + another country! The amount of sunshine we get is ridiculous mashallah 😀 But then again, what will we do when sand-storms strike us!!!
