Australia’s Melbourne Airport officially opened a 12 MW solar farm in February 2022. The installation consists of about 30,000 panels spread under the approach to the north-south runway. Melbourne Airport says the solar farm is expected to generate 17 GWh of clean energy per annum, or the equivalent of 15% of its annual electricity consumption.
