SolaRoad, the street to the future

This is happening! The 1st solar-powered road is open to the public.

Since November 12th 2014, 70m of bike lane in North Amsterdam are equipped with solar panels covered with tempered glass. For the 1st time, roads are used to “harvest” solar energy. The electricity produced is fed into the national grid but in the future could be used to power street and traffic lights or electric vehicles.
