While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    China’s Solar Highway

    A new solar highway in China perfectly captures its clean-energy ambitions

    Echo Huang, December 28, 2018 (Quartz)

    “…[Solar roads have been called impractical but in Jinan, the capital of China’s] northeastern Shandong province, traffic is now rolling over a stretch of expressway that’s also generating electricity from the sun…Extending for 1 km (0.6 miles), the stretch is made of three layers: transparent concrete on the top, photovoltaic panels in the middle, and insulation on the bottom…[Its cost was 3,000 yuan ($458) per sq m, significantly higher than regular streets and China calls it] the world’s first photovoltaic highway [though there is a solar road in France and a solar bike path in the Netherlands]…The Jinan stretch includes two lanes and an emergency lane and is designed for both electricity generation and public transport…[It] could handle 10 times more pressure than the normal asphalt variety and in a year generate 1 million kWH of electricity, which will be used to power street lights and a snow-melting system…It’s also designed to supply power to charging stations for electric vehicles, should those be added in the future…” click here for more
