The province of Utrecht and construction company BAM will soon start placing solar panels on a 20 meter stretch of the N401 provincial road near Kockengen. In this renewable energy experiment, they want to find out how efficient the solar panels located on a road are, and how the materials hold up under traffic, the Telegraaf reports.

The experiment will be done with a solar "mat" produced in France. It comes equipped with a protective layer that will protect the solar panels from traffic.
