Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to Build MN's Largest Solar Power Project

The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is planning the largest solar power installation in Minnesota to date.

The $25.4 million project, announced Thursday at an airport news conference that included Gov. Mark Dayton and explorer and climate activist Will Steger, is expected to generate nearly 20 percent of the airport’s electricity after its completion in the fall of 2015.

The 3-megawatt solar installation will be built on two parking ramps in front of the main terminal. The solar panels will be mounted above the top parking level of the ramps so as not to take up any of the parking spots.
