Solar Bike Path Success

Dutch bicycle paths are fantastic and such a huge part of their daily lives. If those paths could also contain solar panels to provide their power? Awesome!

The company has revealed that its road has generated much more energy than expected — it produced 3,000kWh of electricity in the space of just six months, or enough to power a single person’s home for a year. That doesn’t sound like much, but SolaRoad notes that its path only covers a 230-foot stretch in a Dutch village.
