Why onsite solar generation is important to us...

Our MAC Energy Conservation Program has demonstrated the business and sustainability value of investing in energy efficiency. This program has led us to evaluate the potential for alternative energy options at our airports. Through careful review, we selected solar as a significant opportunity for us to increase our energy infrastructure's resilience, reduce our long-term spend on energy, and invest in renewable energy. While leasing sites for solar generation is becoming common at airports, our 4.3MW onsite facility that feeds the renewable energy straight into our MSP campus energy grid is unique.

“When we started talking about doing a solar project out here, we wanted to do an iconic project, something that was meaningful and that would be visible to the public in terms of our commitment to it.”
