MoDOT Recruits Solar Roadways

What if roads could produce electricity, never develop potholes and wouldn’t ice over? The founders of Solar Roadways claim their innovation can do all this and more! MoDOT’s Road To Tomorrow Initiative has been interested in Solar Roadways for some time. They invited Co-Founder Scott Brusaw to help with solar testing that will determine if these panels are right for Missouri.
