In recognition of Earth Week 2014, ConEdison Solutions and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey joined on April 24 to unveil one of four new solar installations that will reduce emissions and produce clean energy at Newark Liberty International Airport.
At an overall size of 633 kW, the multi-site solar initiative represents the first solar power installations at any airport buildings operated by The Port Authority throughout the region. The 3,200-solar panel installation covers 62,000-square-feet of rooftop space and will supply the airport with approximately 817,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, equivalent to powering 61 homes with electricity or removing 90 vehicles from the road annually. By utilizing solar power as an energy source, Newark Liberty International Airport anticipates an electricity savings of approximately $60,000 per year. Details
