Evergreen Solar (ESLR) announced this afternoon that the first stage of construction is nearly complete for one of Germany’s largest solar installations.  The roof of a tunnel on Germany’s A3 highway will be outfitted with 16000 Evergreen Solar panels on 2.7 km and generate 2.8MW of energy which is enough to power around 600 homes annually.

“This project is a testament to the fact that when both government and developers work together in a creative and goal-oriented way, positive results such as clean, renewable energy can be the result,” said Peter Rusch, Evergreen Solar’s director of marketing and sales for Europe, the Middle East and Asia. “Theoretically, there’s a huge amount of free space on highway bridges and tunnels. If this example is replicated throughout Germany, the country’s market share on solar energy could rise substantially.”
