Business energy clients looking to go green and get cheap electricity may wish to take note of the steps taken by one organisation to improve its environmental credentials.
Birmingham Airport is set to save up to 22 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year though the installation of 200 solar panels on the roof of its terminal.
The work is being carried out in partnership with npower and will see 40,000 kWh of electricity generated annually to help the facility reduce its dependence on mains energy.
Development manger at npower Graham Ryott said: "As one of the busiest airports in the country, Birmingham is understandably a large energy user but supplementing its energy use with on-site generation is a positive step for the site's future."
Chief executive of the airport Paul Kehoe added it is an exciting development, as managing greenhouse gas emissions is a key priority for the company.
In 2008, 9.8 million passengers passed though Birmingham Airport and the facility is looking to further expand its operations with the development of a new £45 million pier to handle more international flights.
