Solar powered train station in London, why not here?
Electrifying the transportation system (which I believe is both needed and happening) will have lots of pieces to it. One of these is using solar power where possible to operate train stations and other facilities. One recent success story is the Blackfriars railway bridge and station in central London. The bridge over the Thames has been roofed with solar panels as part of a much bigger network upgrade (story here).
If they can get solar power even in sun-starved London, can’t we do better in the US?
