RE: California highways may soon produce their own power
jvierra doesn't understand the tech. The piezoelectric tech converts vibrations into electricity that would otherwise flow into the ground as a waste heat. There's no additional drain on the energy generated by auto engines, no decrease in fuel economy. Nor should we dismiss the proposal as being not cost effective as Hates Idiots does without seeing what the manufacturing, installation & maintenance numbers would be now as opposed to what they would have been years ago.
