Cochin Airport to be Solar Powered


Cochin International Airport Ltd (CIAL), India’s first public-private partnership (PPP), is set to be the first airport to be completely solar powered. This is achieved by using over 46,000 solar panel in 45 acres land to produce 12MW. The project completed by Bosch Bangalore is set to inaugurate today.
While I completely laud CIAL for going green, I hope they don’t start charging the airport usage fee again.


Update : A better look with the Al-Jazeera America news report
