Drive on your solar collectors! A cool, make that hot, new way to collect solar power. Use the parking lots and roads we have spread across the country. The Worchester Polytechnic Institute thinks it has discovered a way to use a special combination of asphalt to turn our roads and parking lots into solar collectors, making them do double duty. I’m looking forward to hearing more about this possibility.

Hey, living in the Wisconsin/Minnesota area where the two seasons are winter and road construction it wouldn’t take long to retrofit the roads around here. That would be road construction I could live with.
