High-Speed Rail Line Gets Covered by a Solar Tunnel

A high-speed rail line that takes passengers from Paris to Amsterdam has just gotten some solar bling. A two-mile portion of the track is now enclosed in a solar panel-covered tunnel.

The stretch of track is located near Antwerp, Belgium. A shelter was constructed around that piece of track to shield the mexico levitra trains from falling trees and generic cialis mexico debris while passing through a protected forest and then 16,000 solar panels were placed on top to make the most of the tunnel.

The solar array, installed by Belgium-based Enfinity, will help to power the Antwerp station. The panels will produce enough energy to power all the trains in Belgium for one day per year.

What type of buy prescription viagrabuy viagra in the uk solar panels?
written by Paradigm Partners, June 08, 2011
This is such a great use of renewable energy technology! My only question is, what type of solar panels were used? Paradigm Partners is a manufacturer's representative for Lumeta PowerPly panels. This product can sustain the weight of falling debris much better than traditional paneling since it weighs much less.

Aside from rail line it can also be used as a solar tunnel lane that can produce energy for us to be used. With that it'll make up the space and it can rail line can be used in dual purpose. Also solar tunnel may not only give energy but also the shed for the train that passes.
All thanks to generous subsidies
written by Bart Cerneels, June 10, 2011
Subsidies for electricity produced from photovoltaics is currently at €330 per MWh and is guaranteed to stay at that price for 20 year. Until end of 2009 it was even at €450/MWh but since prices of PV panels are dropping rapidly subsidies are going down as well.
So you can imagine that this is such a very good investment, the most popular one in Belgium for the last couple of years even. On average a PV installation pays for itself within 5 to 7 years, so that is levitra website 13 to 15 years of only today cialis discussionsdiscount priced cialis pure profit.

Currently it's the consumers of electricity that are paying for it, with up to only for you viagra on women €6 per month extra being charged to families just to pay for the green energy produced by mostly huge installations like this. Originally the subsidies were meant to allow consumers to put them on very good site buy online prescription cialis their own roof. Which is what I did and I'm now a net-average producer of electricity so don't way anything at all. There is a plan to make our (practically) E-production monopolist (Electrabel, subs. of GDF-Suez and majority owner of the nuclear plants in BE) pay for it though. That is a good thing since all kinds of nasty tricks has them paying less then 5% taxes that last 3 years.

728 miles of rail line remaining to cover for 100% of yearly train energy consumption? That is not very much more rail line to brand levitra cover.
I live in the smallest county in the state of California (Santa Cruz) where we pay to maintain approximately 412.322 miles of hard surface county roads and cialis cost streets, not just city streets and roads of levitra next day delivery which there are even more miles of hard surface roads. I think it would be very nice to cover our not so beautiful roads, even Highway one, to reduce on noise pollution and reduce the "heat island" caused by the sun shining on all of that concrete and asphalt. It seems expensive now, but very few things get cheaper over the long run.smilies/smiley.gif

Why not install durable windmills(that spin when there is not so strong to holy $?!T wind) in the location that catches the viagra cialis on line wind flow of the train. Maybe this can work with highways too. Cars/wind lower taxes? I did say maybe.
