As a collaboration between Onyx Solar and Butech, these photovoltaic paving tiles are the newest manifestation of sun-powered technology to hit the streets. Since asphalt soaks up a lot heat in the summer, what better way to harness the horizontal ray catchment than to put solar panels on sidewalks?
Spray-on solar windowing is already in the early stages of use on skyscrapers, so it's great to see that photovoltaic paving tiles can do this job on the ground.
