A recent article on Reneweconomy.com.au announced the construction of a one kilometre long solar road in France.
The road was announced by French energy minister who said the construction had begun and will be constructed of “Wattway” paving, made from solar PV.
The solar road for now will be 1km and 2 metres wide, covering an area of 2800m².
The French company behind the Wattway technology, which makes the solar road possible, Colas said the road would generate 17,963 kWh of electricity per day. Impressively this is enough to light a town of 5000 inhabitants.
