SOLAR ROADWAYS: Answer to Our Deteriorating Highway Infrastructure, Crumbling Power Grid and Global Warming Crisis

Abstract: As the day by day, asphalt roads are deteriorating more and more and petroleum products are getting huge hike and resources are very less, there will be no longer feasible material such as asphalt for our road surface. Hearing the concerns about global warming and knowing our dependency on fossil fuels, the idea is to replace all current petroleum-based asphalt roads, parking lots and driveway with solar road panels that collect energy to be used by our homes and businesses which will also eliminate power interruption caused by fallen or broken electric lines or poles. Limitation of petrol, diesel and other fossil fuel in nature will create a resource crisis in near future. It’s hazardous pollution and global warming is creating a severe environmental problem even for the survival of humanity. So this has attracted attention all around the world and alternative resources and technologies are becoming significant today. Solar energy collected from radiant light and heat from sun had given a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar voltaic, solar heating, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, satellite-based solar power plants and artificial photosynthesis
