Car parks

  • There are an estimated 800 million car parking spaces in the US – one for every car
  • It amounts to about 3,515 square miles (9,104 sq km)
  • Covering this whole area with solar panels could generate enough electricity to power 11 million households for a month
  • Covering only 50% of this area with trees could remove 1,260,805 tons of carbon dioxide per year
