Even White house has thrown a red carpet for this innovator who is a retired NAVY Engineer-
Solar Roadways was invited to the first ever Maker Faire hosted by the White House. The event featured Makers, innovators, and entrepreneurs of all ages who are using cutting-edge tools to bring their ideas to life. We were honored to be chosen. We got to meet Bill Nye and we attended a speech by President Obama give in the East Room.
Scott Brusaw, an electrical engineer from Idaho, has heard it all before. Over the past eight years, skeptics (like this one) 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. But Brusaw suddenly has a reason why it will — actually, 2.2 million of them.
Solar Roadways' crowdfunding campaign, which closed on Monday, raised $2.2 million — more than double what Brusaw was seeking — in just two months. The campaign, the most popular in Indiegogo's history, attracted more than 48,000 backers from all 50 states and 165 countries.
