With more than double the campaign’s initial goal committed, the Brusaws are closer than ever to perfecting their concept of glass-encased solar panels that provide a safe, durable driving surface, a heating element to melt snow and ice, LED lights to paint road lines or warning messages and, of course, the ability to generate clean solar power.
