The first road in the world to convert sunlight into electricity officially opened in the Dutch town of Krommenie on Wednesday, November 12.

The world's first road capable of turning sunlight into energy officially opened for traffic Wednesday in the Netherlands.


The road is a 230-foot-long bike path.

Turning highways ... into power plants?


The path is made of concrete modules with solar cells and covered with a thin layer of tempered glass.

It's actually a 230-foot-long bike path in the town of Krommenie.


The energy created from the road can power things like street and traffic lights or households, according to company officials.


The road is a test route developed by the company SolaRoad.

"SolaRoad is a world first that will put the Netherlands on the map as a leader in sustainable innovation," said Henk Kamp, the Dutch minister of economic affairs, at the opening.


Testing will continue for three years to further develop solar roads, officials said.
