The prototype is working for solar roads and parking lots — self-shovelling ones at that!
“Less need for fossil fuels and less dependency upon foreign oil. Much less pollution. How about this for a long term advantage: An electric road allows all-electric vehicles to recharge anywhere: rest stops, parking lots, etc. They would then have the same range as a gasoline-powered vehicle. Internal combustion engines would become obsolete. Our dependency on oil would come to an abrupt end.
“It’s time to upgrade our infrastructure—roads and power grid—to the 21st century.”
