The company will build a 30-acre solar site while Edinburgh Airport is planning to build an 11 acre array

The 30-acre, ground mounted solar farm will give Glasgow Airport the capability to generate enough power for the airport campus and neighbouring businesses.

It is predicted to generate the equivalent of powering almost 20% of homes in Glasgow or 52,000 households.

The 15 MegaWatt (MW) array is already in the early stages of development and, subject to planning, it is expected to be operational by summer 2023.

The plant represents just one of a number of initiatives the airport and its parent group is undertaking to decarbonise its infrastructure and achieve net zero by the mid-2030s.
