China Opens 1-Kilometer Long Solar Road

China Opens 1-Kilometer Long Solar Road

China has opened a 1-kilometer long solar road in Jinan, the capitol of Shandong province south of Beijing. The two-lane road covers 5,875 square meters and can generate up to 1 million kilowatt-hours of power annually — enough to power 800 Chinese homes, according to XinhuaNet . The electricity will be used to run street lights, billboards, surveillance cameras, and toll collection plazas. It will also be used to heat the road surface to keep it clear of snow. Any excess will be fed back into the local utility grid.
