Craig Coppola, a principal with Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate Services and a prominent CRE broker, first wrote about the idea of roads and parking lots made of solar panels back in 2014 for an economic and industry blog he pens.

Now Coppola is back and talking again about harnessing solar power via panels paved into the streets, roads and parking lots.

Coppola again writes in his blog about a solar panel road built in France.

    A very poor idea. A parking lot with overhead solar makes energy AND Provides shade. A road is at the wrong angle, gets dirty and dusty not to mention BIG HEAVY trucks all day.
