Solar Roadway is a company that aims to put solar panels in roads, parking lots, and driveways. The solar panels will pay for themselves by producing clean, sustainable energy to power homes and businesses (including ours!). The panels can be walked and driven on and they have many other features as well, including: heating elements to stay snow and ice free, LEDs to make road lines and signage, and attached Cable Corridor to store and treat stormwater and provide a “home” for power and data cables. iXsystems is very excited to help Solar Roadways with their fundraising campaign. We can already envision the day when the iX datacenter is completely powered by solar roadways.
