3.3 MW Solar System Tops San Diego Airport
Borrego Solar Systems and the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority are developing a 3.3 MW solar system on the roof of the newly expanded Terminal 2 West at San Diego International Airport (SDIA) and in a section the Terminal 2 short-term parking lot adjacent to the terminal.
Borrego Solar will break ground on the project in mid-2014, with an estimated completion date in late 2014. The system will generate about 5.3 million kWh in its first year of operation – enough power to offset a projected 10-13 percent of the energy needs for Terminals 1 and 2 at SDIA.
Borrego Solar will build and finance the system through a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA), which will save the Airport Authority a projected $3 million to $8 million over the contract period.
SDIA will mark Borrego Solar’s third airport installation, following installations currently under construction at airport facilities in Massachusetts and New Jersey.
