French town completes the world’s first “solar road”

Yes, we went to France again. In a small town called Norman Tourouvre-au-Perche, the installation and opening of the world’s first solar road was used to generate electricity for the street lights (not just to make you dance on it). The total length of 1 km on the road, a total of 2,800 square meters of solar panels, spent a total of 5 million euros to build.

The French authorities and the solar panel company Colas will make a two-year assessment of the performance of the road to see if it can drive enough street light for 3,400 people. If the effect is ideal, will be extended to the whole territory of France, up to 1,000 km on the road.
