June 9, 2014 (Investorideas.com renewable energy stocks newswire) As Indiegogo's most popular campaign ever, Solar Roadways https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/solar-roadways — with more than 45,000 contributors from 50 countries— has raised over $2 million (double the initial target) towards turning roadways into a clean energy source.
Solar Roadways is the third most-funded campaign in Indiegogo history with contributors from all 50 states. There's more about the transformational concept in this video that's gone viral: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qlTA3rnpgzU
Solar Roadways is the brainchild of Sandpoint, Idaho couple Julie and Scott Brusaw who turned to Indiegogo after getting started with a small federal grant to research this innovative concept. The initiative has the potential to change the way we utilize the nation’s millions of miles of roadways, parking lots, and walkways— by turning them into green power sources.
The Solar Roadways team says that in addition to creating a new, clean energy source Solar Roadways will also:
- improve road safety by providing LED lighting that replaces paint and can be changed at the touch of a button
- prevent accidents by providing advance illuminated warning of animals or debris on the road
- create an environmentally friendly way to melt snow without salt and sand
Indiegogo launched in 2008 as the world's first crowdfunding platform and is dedicated to allowing anyone, anywhere to fund what matters to them. As the world's funding engine, Indiegogo democratizes access to capital and helps innovators around the world improve society by turning their ideas into reality.
The Indiegogo campaign Solar Roadways will end on June 20. To speak with the team behind Solar Roadways or an executive at Indiegogo, please contact:
