John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH) announces this week that 100 percent of its energy supply is now from renewable sources, thanks to an innovative solution made in collaboration with Worthington Energy Consultants and provided by community partner AEP Energy.
The Columbus Regional Airport Authority expects to save almost $13 million in energy costs at CMH and general aviation airport Bolton Field, which is also covered by the fixed-rate agreement that was signed while the market was near all-time lows.
“The nearly 24,000 passengers who travel daily through John Glenn International can feel good about the green energy powering their airport experience,” says Joe Nardone, president and CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority. “With a new rental car facility opening in 2021, and with other airport developments in support of the growing Columbus Region, we appreciate our energy partners helping us move to 100 percent renewable energy.”
CMH joins a handful of other U.S. airports in programs that source all its energy from renewable sources.
