France to Install Miles of Solar Roadways

 

To generate clean energy, France will soon be covering parts of its historic cobblestone roads with solar panels.

The French government is planning to install 620 miles of energy-generating pavement, which has the capacity to provide for up to 8 percent of the country’s population, reports Co.Exist. Construction is to take place over the next five years, using Wattway panels from construction and transport infrastructure maintenance company Colas.
