Solar panels

Solar Energy

The airport has installed 660 square feet of solar panels on the roof of the rental car return stations with a 10 kW capacity, generating 13, 607 kWh annually. This generated power is fed directly to the Airport’s power distribution system, resulting in a reduction of 2.45 tons of equivalent CO2 emissions each year. Future airport development may include additional solar panels to further augment current power generation.

Energy Offset Credits

Working closely with the Madison Gas & Electric Green Power Tomorrow program, DCRA continues to purchase renewable energy offset credits. Throughout 2010, more than 33% of Airport power was converted to green power. This power purchase is estimated at 260,000 kWh/month and correlates to more than 3,400 tons per year of CO2 offset.
