Solar roads to reduce cost/generate revenue/ prepare for future

Install heated solar roads on tertiary routes to reduce the cost of snow removal and maintenance, reduce the amount of sand/rocks on the road, and reduce collisions.

Use the revenue generated from the energy produced by the panels and the cost savings to expand the amount of solar roads and sidewalks in the city. Therefore not needing additional tax dollars to grow, and eventually lessen the tax burden on citizens.


Use the networking capabilities of the solar road to make calgary a leading city for the development of autonomous vehicles and a leader of clean energy.


Benefits the city, the taxpayer, and the environment. Now that is what Michael Scott would call a win, win, win.
