fail-w200.jpg While every engineer with a notepad and a pencil foreseen the ineffectiveness of Solar Road, the eurocrats zealously proceeded to waste taxpayer bucks. This project is a good illustration of wasting away tax euros on outrageous stuff.

If compared to commercial solar panel setup, which gets a scheduled cleanup, maintenance and has the solar panel array properly oriented to the Sun, the solar road will never gain the comparable efficiency! Because it constantly looks at the Sun with the same, not efficient angle and is regularly shadowed by passing cars and trucks!

Second ridiculous idea is to apply tech in attempts to make the solar road enabled to resist the wear. The roadway development industry spent ages in cost efficiency optimization. Replacing the highway coat with expensive solar boards definitely will destroy the Return Of Investment for both: the highway and solar energy project.

I question that this type of solar roads is likely to be a part of the nearby future. No matter the amount of money is going to be invested in scientific studies and how much of coffee cups the technical engineers will drink.
