• EEVblog #632 – Solar Roadways Are BULLSHIT!

    Dave debunks the Solar Roadways project that generated over $2.1M on Indiegogo, as well as almost another million dollars in US government funding.
    In this video Dave does the solar generation calculations to see if this system is viable from an energy generation viewpoint, and also how much power the LED’s might typically consume.
    What are the losses in a typical practical system like this?
