Snow / Ice Management
For those of us in the northern climates, snow can be a beautiful thing. It creates a winter wonderland and give the kids hours of entertainment building snowmen and igloos, sledding, making snow angels, and having good ole snowball fights.
Unfortunately, it also makes for dangerous driving. Snow removal is expensive and labor intensive. DOT budgets are sometimes expended before the snow stops falling. The need for studded tires and snow chains wreck havoc on asphalt roads, which require repair every spring.

A common experience for us "Snow Birds"
Budgets are heavily taxed by snow removal
A Solar Roadway (or parking lot, driveway, playground, tarmac, etc.) changes all of that. The roads in northern climates heat themselves with their embedded heating elements (similar to the rear window of a car), eliminating ice and snow buildup.
Cities will no longer have the expense of snow removal and the problems caused by the chemicals (salt, magnesium chloride, etc.) used to maintain clear roads.
Businesses will no longer have to worry about keeping their parking lots cleared.
Homeowners will no longer have to suffer through winters of shoveling or plowing snow off their driveways and sidewalks. Imagine the number of deaths and injuries that will be prevented just by keeping the roads safe and dry! Hopefully, this will lead to an added benefit of lowered insurance rates for all of us.
