Crowdfunding Campaign Raises $2.2 Million to Build Solar Roadways | The Impact of Social Media on Community Fundraising | Scoop.it
Scott Brusaw, an electrical engineer from Idaho, has heard it all before. In the past eight years, skeptics have been telling him his concept for solar roadways — replacing America’s roads with solar panels, creating a power grid where pavement used to be — won’t work.
