Chandigarh International Airport is going to be the India’s second air-hub able to harness the renewable energy source for its own use. The airport authorities have signed a deal to install a solar energy facility for airport’s internal use. ReNew Power has got the partnership for this 25 year huge project. Once fully completed, the solar plant is estimated to generate 8.4 million units of power every year, and will help in reducing 8,000 tons of carbon emissions annually for a great environment.
The solar power plant will reduce the total energy cost of the airport up to 20%. The national airport is operated by AAI (Airports Authority of India). Earlier this year Cochin International Airport of became the first and only airport in the world to be operated entirely using solar power.
