Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad and SunEdison (NYSE: SUNE) said they have launched Malaysia´s first airport solar power system at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
The 19-megawatt direct current installation combines ground-mount, parking canopy and roof-top systems to maximize electricity savings and return on investment while minimizing the use of space.
The solar power installation is expected to save the airport approximately 2.1m RM (~USD627,000) annually based on current energy costs.
Malaysia Airports manages and operates 39 airports in Malaysia. On November 30, 1999, Malaysia Airports became the first airport company to be listed in Asia.
