Default Re: Universal Renewable Energy: Suitable Substitute for Morning Sex?

I think that that solar-road idea is a dopey one. It'll take a *lot* of engineering to make it vehicle-resistant while staying in one piece and staying at least approximately transparent for several years. Furthermore, it's likely to get covered by dirt and snow and the like. It would be *much* easier to make solar-panel canopies. Furthermore, one can give them some slope, like a pitched roof, and that will make rain and snow fall off of them. That's also desirable for midlatitude locations because that makes them present the most area to the Sun.
