Last week we told you about a theme park that is going to be entirely operated off the power of the sun, and now an entire airport is being run off a solar farm.
Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport in Tennessee is now the only airport in the country to reach this mark. The airport sees more than 60,000 flights annually. The power it needs now comes from a 12-acre solar farm that generates 2.64 megawatts of power. In addition, there are batteries onsite that assist with maintaining power in the evening hours.
Aztec Solar applauds this accomplishment as it is yet another testament to the potential of solar power not only in terms of powering homes, but commercial solar generation as well.
Think of it this way: If solar can produce enough energy to power an airport, not to mention a theme park with 53 rides and a water park, just imagine what it could do for your business. With solar panels on your roof and possibly even over car ports in your parking lot, you could potentially save thousands of dollars every month on your electricity bill.
And keep in mind, the Solar Investment Tax Credit is good for a 30 percent deduction as long you go solar in 2019. Next year, it drops to 26 percent.
At Aztec Solar, we have a long history of completing quality commercial solar projects in the Sacramento region. We have been in business in this area for nearly four decades and have built up a stellar reputation over that time period. To see some of our past commercial solar projects, click here.
