January 21, 2019 / Airport Technology

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has secured permission from the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) to set up solar power projects at John F Kennedy (JFK) International Airport.The PSC’s permission means the Port Authority will now join hands with New York Power Authority (NYPA) to establish more than 10MW of on-site solar facilities at JFK, including a 5MW solar generation plant that will provide electricity at reduced rates to local communities.Development of solar power projects at the JKF will take place at the airport’s long-term parking space.Upon successful commissioning, the project will also help the Port Authority to meet its greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets of 35% by 2025 and long-term reduction goal of 80% by 2050.
