Solar Roadways don’t add up

At night, the LEDs would need powering from power stations. There isn’t enough to go round.  12 trillion LEDs would cost $1.4 trillion a year to run – or $5,000 a year for each American.  They would double the power consumption of the country.  LEDs only have a few years life expectancy, even when they aren’t being battered by traffic.  

It’s another public/private partnership – in other words, the corporations take the profit from the spend.  The people pick up the tab when it all falls apart.
