A new photovoltaic road surface recently debuted in North America.
In late December, The Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway (The Ray)
– an 18-mile section of I-85 in western Georgia, U.S. – had Wattway’s drive-over solar panels installed over a 50-square-metre stretch of the highway. This marked the first time that the Wattway technology was installed anywhere outside of France. Colas, a world leader in transport infrastructure, and the French National Institute for Solar Energy (INES) developed the patented technology.
