Mans Tham's Solar Serpents in Paradise is such a brilliant idea it makes you wonder why no one had ever thought of it before. Tham has proposed covering L.A.'s Santa Monica freeway in solar panels that could be used to shade cars and provide power.

Tham predicts that Solar Serpents in Paradise could generate up to 150 GWh per year. I personally love this idea and wouldn't mind seeing it expanded to every California freeway.
