Solar Highways is now operational and connected to the electricity grid since 6 December 2018. The energy output of the solar noise barrier is accurately measured by TNO for 18 months. Sevaeral test sections are commissioned, each with a different cleaning regime. These will be used to assess the effect of cleaning on the energy output.
The results will be used to make a good estimate of the maintenance needs, energy performance and financial yield of possible future solar noise barriers. Until 2020 it will be monitored as a demonstration project.
