You are right, a canopy over the parking area is better than putting the solar collection in the surface.

What I'd love is an insight to the thinking of the politicians who not only approved and funded these projects but are still approving them after the first generation has abysmally failed.

Anyone with the slightest engineering ability knew that driving over solar panels was retarded from the get go.

Hopium. They want magic answers so that they can continue their Consumerist lifestyle unabated. They are willing to believe most anything but the truth.

You are always going to find people promoting some bad idea or other after they spent a grand total of 30 seconds learning about it. I think the real surprising thing is the number of youtubers who down voted this video(5x as many down votes as up votes) and trashed the idea in the comments. It seems more people are crying out "snake oil!" rather than "Hopium!".
The oil barrel is half-full.

Reminds me of early aircraft experiments that seem so dumb and naive in retrospect. We should know better in the 21st century but apparently not.
