Why Solar Power Is Taking Off At Airports Across The Country http://b4in.org/p9rM

The biggest solar power project in the entire state of Minnesota is going to be at an airport.

On Thursday, Gov. Mark Dayton joined officials from the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport to announce the construction of a $25 million solar project there, which will be built on top of two parking ramps at the airport’s main terminal. The solar panels are expected to produce 3 megawatts (MW) of power, and generate close to 20 percent of the airport’s total electricity.

Beyond the airport, the project means that Minnesota itself will have 20 percent more solar capacity than it did before.

“Minnesota’s nation-leading clean energy policies, and projects like this one, have significantly reduced carbon emissions in our state while helping create thousands of new jobs,” Dayton said.

Dayton’s not wrong — airport solar projects like the one in Minnesota have been on the rise, creating construction jobs and helping reduce air pollution at airports across the country.

The increase can be attributed both to a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) program aimed at reducing airport emissions, but also the simple fact that solar can provide significant savings for an industry with high monetary and environmental costs.

“Airport interest in solar energy is growing rapidly as a way to reduce airport operating costs and to demonstrate commitment to sustainable airport development,” says the website of Harris Miller Miller & Hanson Inc., a consulting firm that helped write the FAA’s regulatory guidance for solar power at airports.
