Carried by the Public – Private Consortium Solaroad, photovoltaic panels for construction works have been specially made by Soltech for this project.

After months of research, preliminary results have shown that the volume of energy produced by the bike path was higher than expected. With 70 kWh per square meter, the track is able to produce the equivalent of powering for a household of 4 people permanently.

These promising first results are both encouraging for the development of the Solaroad project but also a satisfaction for engineers of Soltech, who are particularly invested in this innovative project.
