Solar freakin’ roadways.
What are they?
They’re solar freakin’ roadways.
What do they want from me?
Well, they’re Solar Freakin’ Roadways.
Okay, so actually this time, what is it?
It’s technology that replaces all roadways, parking lots,
sidewalks, driveways, tarmacs, bike paths,
and outdoor recreation services
with solar panels.
And not just lifeless, boring solar panels.
Smart, micro processing, interlocking, hexagonal solar units.
No more useless asphalt and concrete, just sitting there, baking in the sun
needing to repaved and filling with potholes
that are ruining the axle alignment on your sweet ride, bro.
These are intelligent solar panels.
Replace a panel at a time if damaged or malfunctioning.
They’re covered with a new tempered glass material
that has been designed and tested
to meet impact load and traction requirements.
Oh, and did I mention that they’re also solar panels?
They generate electricity. They generate capital.
They pay for themselves and they keep paying more
because we’re not gonna run out of sun for like 15 billion years.
That lowers the cost of energy,
unlike those bills in the mail that keep going up
And it’s clean energy. Everyone can theoretically drive an electric car
with no pollution and a minimal carbon footprint.
Can you imagine how good our cities would smell?
How much healthier we’d all be?
Excuse me, young man,
am I being led to believe that
this thing is some sort of… thing?
Yes, it’s a thing, a real thing.
And clean energy is only as primary function.
Grab a notepad, ‘cause this is where it gets interesting.
For those in the north, the panels use energy they collect to power elements
to keep the surface temperature a few degrees above freezing.
They’re heated. No more ice and snow on roads
causing traffic delays, accidents and injury.
No more shoveling your driveway and sidewalk.
No salt corroding your car, or wasting time and money on snow removal.
And you can ride your bike or drive your motorcycle all year round.
Every panel has a series of LED lights on the circuit board
that can be programmed to make landscape designs, warning signs,
parking lot configurations, whatever.
These roads never have to have lanes repainted.
Just reprogram to whatever we choose or whatever works best.
Imagine highway road lighting up ahead of you.
How much safer it would be to drive at night?
There’d be improved visibility for pilots landing on solar landing strips.
Imagine walking onto a solar recreation court
and choosing a sports configuration
Wanna play basketball? Cool.
Kids wanna play hopscotch and four square? Awesome.
Ball hockey? Done.
And with LED lights under your feet,
it’s gonna look like freaking Tron out there, but real.
Because this is the real world.
But these panels are also pressure sensitive,
so they can detect when large debris like branches or boulders have fallen on to the road.
Or for when animals are crossing, they can warn drivers
with LED text to slow down for an obstruction.
I’m very, you know, environmentally conscious.
Good. ‘Cause solar roadways use as much recycled material in their production as possible.
Plus, the roadways have two channels
that form what’s called the cable corridor
that runs concurrently with the roadways themselves.
One part houses electrical cables, meaning power lines, day lines,
fiber optics and high speed Internet
Which replaces the need for telephone pole and hanging wires
that can be damaged during storms, causing power outages
Or become extremely dangerous if severed,
either as fallen livewires or buried cables.
The other channel captures and filters storm water and melted snow
Moving them either to a trimming facility or trim them on sight.
Greatly decreasing the amount of pollution
enters our soil, lakes, rivers and oceans.
I’m kind of broke, bro.
Yeah, no kidding.
The economy is in the toilet.
Do you realize how many thousands of jobs this could create and sustain?
Talk about a hypodermic adrenaline shot
to the heart of the manufacturing in infrastructure sector.
And it pays for itself. They’re solar freakin roadways.
I have concerns about the future. Is this thing even possible?
I told you. Yes.
Solar roadway technology was invented by engineering couple
Julie and Scott Brusaw in 2006.
Two of the sweetest people in the world
who met when they were 3 and 4 years old.
Let’s listen to these two.
Hi, we’re Scott and Julie Brusaw, inventors of solar roadways.
We met in the 1960s when we were 3 and 4 years old.
These wonderful, intelligent people want to begin manufacturing a technology
that can power the future of the whole freakin planet.
They were awarded a contract from the Federal Highway Administration
to build two prototypes, which are now complete.
They’re too humble and wonderful to yell at you over the Internet, so I’m gonna do it.
You need to know about this technology. You need to get behind it.
You need to share with everyone you know.
‘Cause this is actually happening
For the first time in human history
We have the technology to do what nature has done
since the beginning of life on this planet.
Harness the power of the sun to fuel our pursuits
And this isn’t about filling a field with solar panels, wasting land.
Our roads and parking lots are just sitting there
reflecting sunlight and absorbing heat. Not doing nothing for nobody.
Which I guess means it’s doing something for somebody
But not very much.
It’s time for an upgrade
We have to make the changes we want to see in the world.
The FHWA has provided the start-up fund to create the prototypes
But now a grass-root effort of concerned and inspired people
can push this project into independent production.
If we vote with our money for project we believe in
We can create a future where our society is driven by new ideas
It need only begin with private driveways and parking lots
Once the ball gets rolling, it’ll create a momentum all on its own.
Let’s put our roads to work.
Not to mention, it’s finally gonna look like the freakin future out there.
City streets, driveway, sidewalks and schoolyards glowing with LED panels.
Are you kidding?
Imagine street festivals. Imagine Mardi Gras.
Imagine the Movement Electronic Music Festival in downtown Detroit.
But all the concrete and hard plastic’s been
replaced with pressure-sensitive panels with multicolored lights in them.
I would lose my mind.
And not to mention
They’re freakin solar panels
It is been estimated that if all the roads in America were converted to solar roadways
The country would generate three times as much energy as it currently uses.
Think about that. An abundance of clean energy.
So quickly, in review
Love biking? Solar roadway.
Hate high energy bills? Solar roadway.
Love the movie Tron? Solar roadway.
Worry about the economy? Solar roadway.
Love sports? Solar roadway.
Scared of hitting moose? Solar roadway
Hate gasoline prices? Solar roadway.
Love helping developing countries? Solar roadway.
Hate tar fumes? Solar roadway.
Love recycling? Solar roadway.
Hate winter driving? Solar roadway. Hate shoveling snow? Solar roadway.
Love clean air? Solar roadway. Need a job? Solar roadway.
Want to save this planet and make it sustainable
for your kids and all future generations of life
who can look back and say,
“Hey, at least they invented solar freakin roadways”
Please follow the link to indiegogo.com
Meet Scott and Julie Brusaw.
Check out they’re work and get informed
This isn’t just donating. It’s an investment in a real future.
Let’s do this.
Because finally, it’s possible.
Well I looked
Thank you.
But I could not see
This love
In front of me
So I stopped
And I took my time
And I walked along
On the finest line
But then I stepped
To the beautiful side
