The applications for solar panels are growing exponentially. Photovoltaic cells work by using semiconductors to absorb light and create a flow of electrons, which can power any number of electrical devices. It's probably safe to assume that most everyone has used a solar-powered calculator at one point or another.
The panels have been covered with a resin containing fine sheets of silicon semiconductor which in turn converts the light into Electricity.
Moreover, instead of building solar farms, building solar roads will also save land acquisition costs
The idea of building solar roads was first brought up by the US scientists Scott Brusaw and Julie Brusaw in 2006.
The first solar road for pedestrians and bicycles was completed in the Netherlands in 2014, and the first 1-kilometre (0.6 mile) solar road for cars was built in Tourouvre-au-Perche, Normandy, in 2016.
