Eight years ago, Scott and Julie Brusaw had a vision of replacing the asphalt on American roadways and parking lots with energy-producing solar panels that are strong enough to withstand vehicular traffic. After a lot of experimentation and funding struggles, the couple and their company Solar Roadways just unveiled their first parking lot made of hexagonal panels!

How Solar Energy Work

How Solar Energy Work

Use of solar panels to heat the driveway so there's no ice/snow in the winter - question: where are the solar panels?  Would prefer a system that doesn't require additional panels, say, on roof but rather an intrinsic part of the driveway - front garden very sunny!

Saw on HGTV extreme houses about using solar panels to heat the driveway/walkways so there's no ice/snow in the winter.
