PhotovoltaicNoiseBarriers
Anefficientwayofnoisepreventionbyapplicationofphotovoltaicmoduleswasfirstdemonstratedin
Switzerlandin1989.Later,thesolutionwasappliedalsoinsomeotherEuropeancountries.Different
photovoltaic noise barriers can be built considering motorway features, barrier construction, the
height of the barrier, and other factor influence (environment etc.). Modules are fixed on the main
