    I would laugh. Except that I have panels for warming water for a swimming pool. On the north facing roof. On first use, the previous owners left the pumps on all weekend on a sunny March weekend. When they got back, the pool was too warm to use. The pool measures 16X24, and is 7 foot deep.

    I wonder how well these things will hold up to sand, salt, and carbide-edged snowplows.

    So you really believe solar panels are stronger than concrete and asphalt and can survive huge temperature swings. Of course all the oil and dirt dripping on the road will not diminish their effectiveness. And I am sure the surface will not be more slippery and dangerous when it rains. And of course roads will be cheaper to build. You can’t fix stupid.
