The Dutch is on a roll when it comes to solar paths
The good people of the Netherlands built another solar bike path, this time the solar path is bringing history and future together – a glow-in-the-dark, Van Gogh-inspired bike path.
The path, which first lit up on Wednesday night, is named after Vincent Van Gogh, who once painted in Nuenen. The head designer was inspired by Van Gogh’s famous painting, “Starry Night,” and was able to make his idea come to life with the help of an innovative Dutch construction company.
The path is coated in photoluminescent paint that’s also embedded with small LEDs powered by nearby solar panels. The path essentially charges all day so that it can glow during the night, and it also has backup power in case it’s overcast.
