Bengaluru: State-run Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has set up a 3.5-megawatt solar energy project to power its airport facility in the eastern suburb of this tech hub, said the defence behemoth on Friday.
"The Rs.25-crore project will enable us to use solar energy and reduce dependency on conventional sources to power our airport facilities, including the Light Combat Aircract (LCA) Tejas production complex," HAL said in a statement here.
Spread over 23 acres with 12,985 solar modules installed, the single-axis tracker based project is the first at an airport in the country. The plant can generate up to 24,000 units of electricity per day depending on sunlight.
