In South Korea, on the highway between Daejeon and Sejong, there’s a 20 mile stretch of solar panels covering the bike path in the middle of the highway.

Aside from producing a fair amount of energy for them (enough to cover the highway’s lighting and other applications) they also protect cyclists from the heat of the sun. Already having enough selling points, imagine the applicable uses if we expand on this idea!
