|Duration||Spring 2018 - Fall 2018|
|Team Name||Solar roadway warriors|
“Solar Roadways”, located in Sandpoint, Idaho, is working towards manufacturing a modular system of specially engineered solar panels that can be walked and driven upon. The panels use LEDs to create signage without paint and heating elements to remove snow and ice accumulation. Our team is working closely with the staff here at the University of Idaho (U of I) and with this company to ensure the development of Solar Roadway panels that exceeds expectations and hopefully will be installed at the University of Idaho in the near future. We will be updating the information on this page monthly until it is finalized in December of 2018, where we will then hope to share the success of our project.
