When completed, the renewable energy produced by the 11,000 PV panels will cover more than 30% of the airport’s energy needs. All these initiatives have earned the airport its successful upgrade to level 2 “Reduction” of Airport Carbon Accreditation. Congratulations to everyone that had a hand in this success!
