Pacific Air Cargo has selected Distributed Energy Partners to install a 110 kilowatt solar electrical generation system on the roof of its airport facility.
The system will consist of 462 photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of Pacific Air Cargo’s 47,000-square-foot facility on Keehi Place off of Lagoon Drive. The system, which will generate an estimated 15,059 kilowatt hours of energy per month, is expected be completed in November, according to a news release from the two companies.
Pacific Air Cargo estimates the system will cut its electricity bill by 50 percent, and pay for itself in about five years after state and federal tax credits.
