Solar Pavement: The Future of Sidewalks? 

Onyx Solar recently teamed up with Butech to launch a new line of photovoltaic paving stones made from ceramic and glass. The streamlined solar stones are manufactured using a process that produces less CO2 and uses less energy than traditional pavement, making this energy-generating material even better for reducing the environmental impact of building projects. Onyx and Butech hope to release the tiles to market by the end of this year, making them the first PV pavement system available for purchase. Though the pavement is not suited for vehicular traffic, it is well suited for human traffic and can support furniture as well.

Because of the slop, from the inside, it seems as though you’re on ground level and tree-height at the same time.
