|The solar park is conceived as a green “promenade”, along which there alternate panoramic viewing points and entirely self-sufficient solar greenhouses. As with city farms, visitors to the park will be able to stop and buy the local produce grow in these greenhouses.|
The asphalt will be substituted with a technological road surface of a kind already in use in the USA (“solar roadways”). The road surface itself will, therefore, collect energy as a part of a power-generating system composed of a dense grid of solar cells coated with a transparent ad highly resistant form of plastic.
The entire system is capable of producing around 40 million kWh per annum – enough energy to provide power for approximately 15.000 families.
