Back in Bloglander's infancy, I wrote a post about a Sagle couple who had received a $100,000 federal grant and built a small-scale prototype of what they call a "solar roadway" — a series of photovoltaic panels, stuffed with LEDs and broadband and phone cables — that could be stitched together to form a new kind of enviro-friendly road surface.

Sandpoint's Bonner County Daily Bee picked up where I left off on Wednesday, with an interesting feature on Scott and Julie Brusaw's progress, including a link to the awesome video below.
