Aeroplex/Aerolease Team Launches New Solar Energy Project at Long Beach front Airport

Spring Street. The panels produce 380 kilowatts (kW) of photo voltaic power for every year, which is a greenhouse gasoline emissions reduction equivalent to just one million miles pushed by an typical passenger car. Much more information on the approximately 424 metric tons of carbon dioxide offset equivalents can be discovered below.
