Solar-Powered Kicks on Route 66


One of America’s first official highways is getting a solar-powered tuneup.

Also known as the Main Street of America, US Route 66 was established in 1926. Today, the famous road running between Chicago and Los Angeles is about to become the first public roadway to undergo a solar panel reconfiguration in certain areas, thanks to Idaho startup Solar Roadways.

The solar roadways are made of hexagonal solar panels that conduct clean energy and could revolutionize methods of energy consumption by making energy cheaper, more adaptable and exponentially cleaner. The project will start small but is expected to expand quickly.
