AIRPORTS ACROSS the United States are embracing solar power in a way unique to them — by using their roofs to host massive solar farms. Because airports typically occupy vast expanses of land, they are uniquely positioned to become major players in the country’s green energy future. A study from the University of Colorado – Denver found that 20 percent of airports across the United States have adopted solar farms over the past decade. That number is likely to rise as cities and states continue to adopt clean energy and net-zero targets and move ever-closer to those target dates.
