Project Opportunities Canada
“Canada has 415,600 kms of paved roadways – 37,000 kms of Solar Highways could supply the electrical needs for the entire country (640TW including future EV demand).”
Windsor-Quebec City corridor
900 kms along the Trans-Canada Highway
Extended highway life
Reduced sun and water damage can extend the highway lifetime 20 years.
Reduced road repairs
By diminishing the effects of the freeze-thaw cycle.
Reduced snow ploughing
Reduced use of salt
Reduced salt purchases.
Reduced seepage into groundwater and contamination of drinking water. Reduced salt contamination of adjacent farmland.
Reduced road and bridge repairs due to salt damage
Reduced salt migration and contamination.
Reduced vehicle salt damage
PLUS: Increased safety and reduced number of accidents due to better visibility, weather and road conditions in solar highway areas.
“Utilizing Trans-Canada highway for solar energy production saves 8.000 acres of potential farmland.”
