SANDPOINT – Scott Brusaw has a vision for the nation’s roads. He believes the solar-powered glass pavers his company makes could transform thousands of miles of pavement into a new energy source.
Route 66, the historic U.S. highway made famous for attracting gas-guzzling Chevrolet Bel Airs and 1957 Cadillacs traveling from Chicago to Los Angeles, is turning green.
The city of Sandpoint will start work soon on the first public pilot project with Solar Roadways Inc., the North Idaho startup that aims to transform roads, sidewalks and parking lots into heavy-duty solar surfaces capable of generating power and melting ice. The city has received a $48,734 Idaho Gem Grant from the state Department of Commerce to install a 150-square-foot solar surface at Jeff Jones Town Square at Third and Main streets in downtown Sandpoint.
When the helmsman of the USS Enterprise likes your invention, you know you’re on the road to success. George Takei, who portrayed Sulu on “Star Trek” and has more than 8 million followers on social media, plugged a North Idaho couple’s idea for transforming roads, sidewalks and parking lots into solar surfaces. The next day, Scott and Julie Brusaw saw their crowdfunding campaign pass the $1 million goal.
When the helmsman of the USS Enterprise likes your invention, you know you’re on the road to success.
The streets of Sandpoint may soon lead to an energy revolution. The city is on track to be the first to replace a traditional road surface with super-strong, textured glass panels that harness solar power.
A North Idaho company that aims to transform U.S. highways into a vast, energy-producing network is getting $750,000 from the federal government for the next phase of its project: a solar parking lot.
Spending an hour with Scott Brusaw, of Sagle, just might convince you that eliminating the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels is not only possible, but likely. Brusaw and his wife, Julie, recently won General Electric’s Ecomagination Challenge, an innovation experiment seeking ideas on how to build the “next-generation power grid.”
