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.
