Solar Airfield Lighting

Replace airfield lighting systems with individual unit solar powered LEDs. Already utilized by several ICAO locations. Initial buy-in costs would be recuperated in approximately 10 years time depending on the variable costs of established airfield maintenance and energy. No real estate needed for solar farm, each unit generates and stores power. Airfields are typically largest power drain on installation facilities.
