Smart Solar PV Sound Barriers

Innovative Smart Solution to Highway Sound

Solar PV noise barriers (PVNB) offer solutions to a multitude of issues that face communities and State Departments of Transportation. The PV modules serve a dual purpose as both a noise barrier and power generation facility, with the following suite of benefits:

  • The energy produced by PV Noise Barriers can be sold at a discount to either DOTs or to communities at a reduced rate, saving taxpayers more money
  • The benefits are not just financial – the environmental benefits of producing clean, renewable energy will help local and state governments achieve carbon reduction targets at no cost to taxpayers
  • Minimum use of land
