Port of Oakland Wants to Build, Run Solar Panel Field at Airport

Oakland, California [Inside Bay Area] The Port of Oakland will look to the sky for the energy to power up Oakland International Airport. As part of its plan to make renewable sources produce 20 percent of its energy, the port wants to contract with SunEdison LLC to build and operate a solar panel field at the airport. The solar panel field, which would cost almost $5 million over 20 years, will produce one megawatt of electricity a day to the airport, or almost a quarter of the amount the entire complex uses.
