SAGLE, Idaho -- A North Idaho couple’s innovative solar road project is so popular, it broke a crowdfunding record.
According to Indiegogo, solar roadways have drawn the most contributors ever to a single campaign.
KREM 2 on Your Side told you about solar roadways fundraising efforts that launched back in April. Scott and Julie Brusaw hoped to raise $1 million to start a manufacturing facility in North Idaho.
Almost 37,000 people from 42 countries have helped the couple reach their goal. They have already raised $1.6 million.
They hope to replace all asphalt roads and parking lots with solar roadways. They said the system would pay for itself by powering the country with energy from the sun.
