The Dutch water management agency plans to install solar panels along both sides of the A37 highway in Drenthe province, as well as on the median strip, to cover 300 hectares in total.
The project is part of a plan to build projects on state land, as the domestic PV industry continues to search for alternative surfaces on which to deploy solar
The water management agency of the Netherlands, under the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management – plans to deploy a large-scale solar plant along the length of the A37 highway, in the northeastern province of Drenthe.
