France officially opened the first solar power road in the world

France has unveiled the first solar-powered road in the world. The 1km road, made from electricity-generating panels runs through the village of Tourouvre-au-Perche, in Normandy. Developed by Colas over a five-year period, the road, called a 'wattway', will power all of the streetlights in the village, and expects to see 2,000 motorists per day.
