France area was opened to traffic the first solar street in Normandy, one kilometer
The test road, Watts Way ‘name has been estimated daily vehicles that will pass approximately 2 thousand, 2880 Solar panels have been installed on the road. It is estimated that the road to the amount of 767 kilowatts hour of electricity generated would be 280 megawatt hour which is enough to light the street lights around and entertaining area around the road at night. Solar testing will continue for two years.
The solar panels are very fragile and cannot withstand more weight, but Watt Way is built strong enough for the installation of solar panels so if a car or truck passes over them, they do not.
Earlier strongest solar panels made in the Netherlands could pass on those that were able to ride a bicycle and had been broken when more weight.
