Solar Roadways — Is This the Answer to America’s Energy Problem?

This video is being passed around pretty aggressively in social media here the last few weeks.  A company that has come up with the concept of solar roadways created the video and is trying to solicit donations to potentially get this thing off the ground (or on the ground as it were).  As you might imagine, not everyone is excited about solar roadways for a variety of reasons.  And as you also might imagine, the concept is being boldly ignored by our friends in the mainstream media.

What do you think?  Could this be the wave of the future?  Answer to America’s addiction to energy?  And if so, will Big Oil and other interested parties ever let this technology see the light of day (pardon the pun)?  Let us know what you think in the comments below.
