Denver International Airport, the world’s 10th largest airport, has recently switched on its third major solar power installation. This means that the airport now receives 8 MW of its energy from solar power. This amounts to about 6% of the total energy that the airport needs in order to run for an entire year. Although this may not seem like an overly astonishing accomplishment – only 6% – we do have to take into consideration the sheer amount of energy that an airport like Denver uses. We also must take into account the fact that any transition to solar power, especially one for a specific place, is going to be a slower process than many of us wants it to be. Because of this, we must remain patient and see this as the huge step forward it is, and not for what it could be.
