Apparently walking on solar panels damages them as the First solar roadway is broken in first week
Roughly 25 out of 30 panels installed on it broke within a week after developers pumped $3.9 million into it over 6.5 years of development.
Despite massive internet hype, the prototype of solar “road” can’t be driven on, hasn’t generated any electricity and 75 percent of the panels were broken before they were even installed.
Of the panels installed to make a “solar footpath,” 18 of the 30 were dead on arrival due to a manufacturing failure.

For many, there’s solidarity, as people laugh at the awful racist’s discomfort. For too many, Nazism is viewed as merely another opinion – not an inherent threat – so a punched Nazi is something small to celebrate. In response, others have equated punching a Nazi with Nazism. “You are just as bad as they are!” is the claim. This is when “We’re better than this!” is a cover for “This upsets me!”.
