Honolulu airport installs solar carport

The Honolulu airport will install an array featuring 4,260 solar modules atop a new carport on the roof of its Terminal 1 parking garage in a project that aligns with the state’s goal to reach 100% renewable energy by 2045.

A statement from the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation noted that the energy produced would be used at the airport facility and would reduce the overall electricity bill by nearly half. "There is so much to like about this improvement project. It’s good for the environment, it will save the state money and it provides covered parking at the airport," said Governor David Y. Ige. "This is another step forward in my administration’s continuing mission to meet Hawaii’s sustainability goals."

Construction on the project will be completed in November by Johnson Controls Inc.  According to the statement, "Overall, the contract with Johnson Controls Inc. will generate more than $600 million in guaranteed cost savings over the 20-year life of the contract at Hawaii’s airports, which began in 2014. It is the largest single state Energy Savings Performance Contract in the nation."
