Part of China’s solar highway was stolen causing a shutdown

China opened a one-kilometer stretch of photovoltaic highway – built of solar panels which cars can drive over on December 28.

A narrow 1.8-meter panel was removed and seven surrounding panels damaged by the thieves. A road construction worker was quoted as saying that it appeared the theft was the work of a professional team that may have been interested in the technology used on the road.
