The Sunport was the first airport in the nation to receive a VALE grant for an on-site solar project. The first grant was in the amount of $2.4 million and provided for six solar arrays. The city made the successful case that a photovoltaic array would reduce emissions not only at the facility, but on a regional scale by reducing electricity needs that come from coal-powered sources.
