Solar Panel Installations at Airports

Dec 05, 2018


Airports seem like an ideal environment for solar photovoltaic projects, as they are usually situated on flat terrain and encompass a large area of “unused” terrain between runways, taxiways, and buildings. The land close to and at the airport is often unsuitable for other use due to noise and environmental restrictions. However, there are potential risks associated with the use of solar photovoltaic installations at airports.
