Charleston, West Virginia’s Yeager Airport is to receive approximately $3.5 million in a discretionary grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to fund a solar energy project.

More than 1,800 solar modules will be installed on top of one of Yeager Airport’s parking garages, which will generate enough power to supply both parking garages. Solar energy produced by the panels will also be used at the airport to help cut the overall electricity bill.

Airport Director Terry Sayre says the project will highlight the airport’s commitment to sustainability.
