Solar Roadways - Introduction

Solar Roadways - Introduction
We are excited to announce that Indiegogo has asked us to join their InDemand program: It allows teams to continue raising funds for their projects. We are very excited about this for many reasons: We've had numerous requests since our original campaign ended: "Can I still donate?", "Can I still get a Solar Roadways perk?", "I'd love to be a part of this movement", etc. Many people hadn't even heard about Solar Roadways until after the campaign had ended. We're still in Research & Development, so we're not making a profit yet. We received donations from 165 countries, which is a clear indication that the world is ready for the paradigm shift Solar Roadways will become. Since our original campaign, countless supporters have expressed what it means to them to help us spread the word.

For years it was thought that Great Basin climate marched to the tune of a different drummer. This paradox arose from an iconic climate record from Devils Hole, Nev., which suggested that Great Basin climate warmed out of glacial periods before warming from changes in the earth's orbit.
