Borrego Solar Systems Inc. is developing a 3.3 MW photovoltaic power system for San Diego International Airport (SDIA).
The project will feature arrays on the roof of the newly expanded Terminal 2 West and in a section of the Terminal 2 short-term parking lot adjacent to the terminal. Borrego says the project will be completed late this year.
The system is expected to generate approximately 5.3 GWh of electricity per year -Â enough power to offset a projected 10%-13% of the energy needs for Terminals 1 and 2 at SDIA.
Borrego Solar will build and finance the system through a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Airport Authority.
