Airport + Solar = Savings for Randall Airport


Project Profile

To remain competitive, Randall Airport needed to cut energy costs. Installing solar would cover current needs and allow conversion to solar powered electric heat, but the airport needed to find funding for the project. 

Long-term, 20-year Energize NY PACE financing filled the funding void and enabled the airport to install a system large enough to help supply the airport’s conversion to electric heat.

“Replacing our old energy supply with solar made financial sense and was a ordable with Energize NY PACE financing. This project would never have happened without PACE financing.” 
-Charlie Brodie, Owner and Operator of Randall Airport
