Kochi Airport, one of the major airports in Kerala,  one of the southern states in India bagged the prestigious position of  world’s  first fully run airport by Solar Power.

Mr. Oommen Chandy the Kerala Chief Minister inaugurated this prestigious project on Tuesday.  This 12 MWp Solar Power Plant is comprised of 46,150 solar panels and is laid across 45 acres of land near the cargo complex in Kochi.  It is accredited as the first airport in the world, fully run by solar power.

Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) said in a press release:

“With this Solar Power Plant the airport will have 50,000 to 60,000 units of electricity per day to be consumed for all its operational functions, which technically makes the airport “absolutely power neutral”

This is indeed a great achievement, and am sure it leads to reduce the environmental pollution in the state.  A wonderful step taken by the state government.  Indian Airport authority should implement this type of energy source to save the planet earth in measure.
