  1. Solar Guidance for Airports:Information for Sponsors on Developing Airport Compatible Solar Projects A Project of the Federal Aviation Administration Association of California Airports September 16, 2010 Phil DeVita

  2. Why a Solar Guide • Approximately 12 Airports operating solar facilities • Airports interest in solar growing rapidly • Solar Energy clean and proven renewable energy source • FAA responds with Solar Guide

  3. Why Airports • Wide solar exposure • Lands and buildings are suitable • On-site electricity demand • Meets cost-effective test for airport business • Also meets public policy requirements of government • Does not interfere with airport operations

  4. Project Objective • Encourage safe and cost-effective solar projects • Simplify complex energy and financial issues • Present case studies on completed projects • Define FAA priorities in funding solar (i.e.VALE) • Establish FAA points of contact for solar • FAA recommendations (i.e. CATEX, Form 7460, further glare research, etc.)

  5. Sections of the Guide • Solar Overview • How it works, technologies, designs, players • Siting and Feasibility • Is my airport a good site, where to locate, how to pay • Regulatory and Safety • Part 77, NEPA, ALPs • Airport Solar Economics • Tax incentives, rebates, power purchase agreements, bonds • FAA’s Role • Protect air safety, develop projects at FAA facilities, guidance • Recommendations (i.e. CATEX, Part 77, Funding)

  6. NEPA Review of Solar Projects • NEPA Issues * habitat * historic * water quality • Roof-mounted vs. Ground-mounted • Categorical exclusion criteria being considered

  7. Part 77 Review – Protecting Safe Air Navigation • Physical Interference • Construction • Electromagnetic • Reflectivity

  8. Solar Glare

  9. Case Studies Denver (2 MW, 1.6 MW) • Two projects completed, third in planning (2 MW) • Ground-mounted • Private developer – land lease and power purchase • Utility agreement to purchase renewable credits

  10. Case Studies Albuquerque (438 kW) • Multi-phased Project on Parking Structures • Phase One Completed • Phase Two - Applying to VALE Program for partial funding • Airport owned and maintained

  11. Case Studies Fresno (2 MW) • Ground-mounted, private lease • Built in approach zone, land has no value to Airport • Benefited from California state funding

  12. Case Studies Oakland (756 kW) • Ground-Mounted • Adjacent to GA Runway • Land Lease with Private Developer, owns and maintains

  13. Case Studies San Francisco (445 kW) • Roof-Mounted on Terminal 3 • Owned by City Utility • Airport is host, receives subsidized power

  14. Case Studies Boston (200kW) Roof-Mounted on Terminal B Airport Owned Electricity used within the garage Case Studies

  15. Case Studies • Bakersfield (745 kW) • Ground-Mounted • Single Tracking • Land Lease with Private Developer
