The Le Castellet International Airport goes green with a solar roof
A solar power plant built on the roof of a hanger is in fact a great way to reap energy from the sun, taken that it is exposed to the sun and has a large surface area. That’s exactly what happened at the Le Castellet International Airport in the South of France where the Solarquest power plant on the roof of the H5 hanger was inaugurated. Airport president Claude F. Sage states that this is yet another step taken towards a greener environment, after the environment friendly hotel recently built near the airport. According to director of the airport, Gérard Neveu, the airport needs to make itself fit enough to welcome the bust business planes with environmentally minded private jet travelers.
These eco-friendly environment kissing steps taken by the Le Castellet International Airport have been applauded for all its worth.
