India Considers Covering National Highways with Solar Panel Roofs

Scientists at the Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI) have made a proposal to cover major roads and highways in the state of Gujarat with elevated platforms that will hold solar modules.

The pilot project that they hope to install will cover the 205 kilometre long Ahmedaba-Rajkot highway, with computer simulations suggesting that the project would produce 104MW of electricity.

Following a success in Gujarat the scientists hope that the idea will spread to other highways around the country, and have estimated the power generation potential for some of the major national highways.
