TALLAHASSEE'S SOLAR AIRPORT

Tallahassee's Regional Airport flipped the switch on its 20-kilowatt solar array early this month and plan to monitor it over the next year to see if expanded use of solar would be a good investment for the future. 

Airport officials say the $155,000 system can reduce overall energy expenses by about $5,000 to $7,000 per year.  The 176 solar photovoltaic panels are expected to save the airport 45,000-kilowatt hours of power and offset 36 tons of carbon emissions.
