France inaugurated the world's first solar route

  • France inaugurated the world's first solar route

On December 22 last France inaugurated the first solar road in the world in Normandy, in Tourouvre-au-Perche west of Paris. This solar route corresponds to a complete kilometer with 2,800 square meters of solar panels.

The road could support 2,000 vehicles a day and give power to the public street lighting of the town, which has more than 3,000 inhabitants.

The solar panels are covered by a resin of sheets of silicon, which allow to support the weight and generate electricity.
