Solar Roadways

Makes more sense that putting up “Freakin” wind turbines. Mind you we could all end up going to bed early in the winter! This could be the next best thing for road safety since cats eyes. Mind you reality suggests that the cost would be humongous. Just imagine extending the A9 to Inverness with this. It may make a lot of sense but the cost of wind powered renewable energy and HS2 would pale into insignificance in comparison. Before you cast it in the bin though consider the possibilities with road junctions whose directional signage could be varied at the touch of a button. How much does every fatal accident cost? £1.69 million! What is the cost of ice related accidents. Makes you think that these could actually make economic sense. Not everywhere. That is not an economic option. But in targeted locations. However from an engineering point of view I suspect that they will remain as very expensive parking bays at the best. There are just too many negatives in the practical application. Probably see them trialled in Government office parking bays to charge cars. The fact that the car would obscure the light and prevent them working would be entirely compatible with government logic!

About Dougal Quixote

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
