Now this is what I like, if you're going to criticise a new idea for a solar PV scheme, at least suggest an alternative, and that, actually, is exactly what Tavarish on the Jalopnik website has done. You will see on this article various criticisms of the solar cycle path constructed in Amsterdam. The piece includes a picture of what seems to be the glass cover broken up, revealing the panels beneath.
However, rather than using this as an excuse to bash PV in general, Tavarish has pointed out a solar roadway scheme that DOES work, that is to say the bike path stretching along the Daejeon to Sejong motorway in South Korea.
