The first ever solar road panels were unveiled

Posted: Updated:

The first ever solar road panels were unveiled in Sandpoint, Idaho. This according to NBC. Officials say the panels contain LED lights to create lines and signage without paint and heating elements to prevent snow and ice accumulation. The panels will be tested on walkways and sidewalks first before being installed on the road. One criticism is the new road could be pricey for taxpayers, but officials say they're happy to be the first to "show off the new innovation."
