Work has begun on Australia’s second largest rooftop solar power system. By mid-year, the solar panels on  Terminal 1 at Adelaide Airport  should be capable of producing 114 kilowatts – sufficient to power about 30 households. This will not be sufficient to power the entire airport but it will reduce greenhouse gas emission by about 160 tonnes a year.

The rooftop system will be the largest in South Australia and the second largest in the country, next to the Queen Victoria Markets in Melbourne.
