Solar Roadways Update: Testing, Testing, One Two Three Testing…

Posted by Phoenix Woman on May 7, 2015

Scott and Julie Brusaw and their crew at Solar Roadways are testing how well solar panels collect energy when they’re installed flat (as opposed to angled for optimum sunlight collection) at various latitudes across the U.S. – information that will be useful in calculating how much energy the Solar Road Panels will generate when installed in various locations, altitudes, and latitudes.

The first two locations are both in Arizona.  One is at the Westward Look hotel in Tucson, the other at Biosphere 2 in Oracle.  The public will be able to see the data collection projects as they collect ther data.

The panels currently being used for data collection are conventional solar panels, but Solar Roadways will soon be replacing these testing site panels with Solar Roadways’ own SR3 panels.

This is one of the things that will save us.  This, right here.
