The cost is paid by those that buy power.
What I produce and don't use is sold back to the grid reducing my bill to close to zero.
How much does it generate? How long does it take to recover the extra $190-$340 per square meter cost?
Edit: And a solar road can produce about $15 a year worth of electricity from each square meter of solar panels. So it could roughly pay for itself, compared with asphalt, over about 15 years.
So, with an overnight interest rate of about 5%, your extra (they hope), $190 expense, gets paid off in 20 years, longer if rates rise. Hmmmmm…..are they expected to last 20 years?
Doesn't answer the question.
Sure it does. You sell energy to maintain the roadway.
Maintain? You haven't even repaid the cost of the road.

You do realize that link is almost 2 years old, don't you think the technology has advanced in the last 2 years? Moron
