I have recently returned from a touring holiday in Italy. Many of the car parks there were equipped with solar panels and provided a little shade for the parked cars underneath.

I thought this was an improvement on fields full of solar panels, which I consider an eyesore.

Perhaps we should do something similar in this country.
