Three years ago, we were pretty dismissive of Scott Brusaw's solar roadway. However you couldn't deny the guy's passion; he took the time to respond to every commenter's complaint.
Six months ago Scott received a $ 100,000 grant to build a prototype, and had to deal with the sceptics again; the Infrastructurist called the whole idea "batshit crazy"
But crazy or not, Scott just keeps going; now he has built his prototype.
There is still good reason to be sceptical; that is a lot of wiring. Scott's $ 35 trillion idea of repaving America in solar roadways is still down the pike a bit.
Read our correspondence with Scott, where he explains all.
