Corvallis Airport

Corvallis Airport Solar

An industrial spill at the Corvallis Airport left a 1.8 acre reclaimed Superfund site with limited usability. The City of Corvallis  identified ground-mounted solar panels as an opportunity to utilize this land, save city operating expenses and educate the community about renewable energy.

This project involved the installation of a 100 kW ground-mounted solar array at the Corvallis Airport. The location of the array is a former EPA industrial Superfund site. The array generates enough electricity to power at least 75% of the energy consumed by City-paid Pacific Power meters. This project demonstrates to the community that very difficult to use property can be put to beneficial use.
