Imagine a world where snow never hinders the roadways, your sidewalk never needs shoveling again, your air is cleaner, roads never need paving again, all the roadways are illuminated at night, and your electricity bill helps pay itself.

I saw a clip about this a couple of years ago at a GE Innovations website. I was excited about it then and glad to see it is now being implemented. I look forward to seeing it installed in more places. Thanks for posting this article.

Most uplifting story this week. Wondering how the Brusaw's tests are going now (6 years later).
