Peachtree Corners – the nation’s first smart city environment powered by real-world infrastructure and next-generation connectivity – today unveiled the city’s new solar roadway system which produces energy for a solar-powered EV charging station located at city hall. The installation also marked the first road surface-powered solar panels to be activated in a United States city.
The first solar roadway in the U.S. debuted on an 18-mile stretch of I-85 in southwestern Georgia. It's called the Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway, and the asphalt is a living laboratory now known as The Ray -- it offers a vision of how highways could look and function in the future.
