Boeing to Build its New 787s Entirely on Solar Power

Boeing to Build its New 787s Entirely on Solar Power

At 2.6 MWs, this will become the largest solar power station in the Southeast. 18,000 solar panels are being added to the roof of the assembly building, an area of about 10 acres. The plant itself, at $750 million, represents the largest industrial investment in South Carolina history, and will be up and running in July this year. The first completed 787 built using solar power is expected to be shipped out the door around next April.
