Have you ever thought about solar road. The development of technology allows projects that until recently were completely unimaginable. Every week announces a new innovation in technology. In every profession there are new inventions and so energy has something new.
The last period in France are working on a project that will mark a new era of road construction and energy. French minister of ecology and energy Ségolène Royal announced that the state is will build in the construction of 1,000 kilometers of so-called “solar highway“. This is a brand new technology, where the surface of the pavement placed solar panels, which will generate electricity. They are called “Wattway” and one kilometer of such a highway can produce enough electricity to power the village of 5000 inhabitants!
that was declared in the announcement Colars company, which produces solar panels that will be installed on the new French motorways. It is clear, therefore, that the 1000 kilometers of such solar pavement to produce enough electricity for 5 million households, around 8 percent of the entire population of France. Such technological solutions are highly beneficial, but if someone asks how solar panels withstand the traffic of hundreds of thousands of vehicles, the manufacturer guarantees that they are strong enough and designed so that the tires of the vehicle better grip on this surface than on conventional asphalt.
