Currently, the interstate system is 46,876 miles long throughout the United States. Running between various highways and interstates in some states, there usually runs a strip of land. However, this land is not being put to good use. This land should be developed into something that will help the United States in the long run. As a country, we should put solar panels along the undeveloped land that is in between the highways. In this way, the space will be used for something productive, cut down on costs for the maintaining of the land, and will generate more power for the United States.
In a culture that is constantly moving, many Americans find that it is a frequent occurrence to drive on the highway to get to any number of places. They then take that same highway back to their original location. But what about the land that separates the north and south bound or the east and west bound lanes? What should be done with this property that has no real purpose?
Instead of continuing to have this land be useless except for sparse vegetation and aesthetic appeal, we have a plan that would use this land for solar energy panels. By putting solar energy panels onto this land, energy would be created for the state in which these solar panels were located. This would also decrease the amount of maintenance that goes into planting wildflowers and trees and general upkeep of this property.
