TECO installs solar power array at Tampa International Airport

TECO Energy installs solar panels at Tampa International Airport

Tampa Electric Co (TECO) is now installing 7,000 solar panels on top of Tampa International Airport, the largest array it has yet constructed.

The array will generate 2 megawatts (MW) of electricity, roughly equivalent to the amount of energy required to offset the power needed to operate the airport’s commuter train now being installed as part of the airport’s $1 billion upgrade.

TECO is leasing the space from the airport and will funnel the generated electricity into its existing grid. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
