The following article about the Solar Compass was published on April 25, 2017.
Researchers at Thompson Rivers University are installing Canada’s first solar electric road surface in Kamloops.
Michael Mehta’s Solar Compass Project will embed 64 super-durable solar panels right outside the main doors of the university’s Arts and Education Building.
“The system will produce enough power to run 40 computers in that building, eight hours a day, 365 days a year,” said Mehta.
