Boeing Is Going to Start Using Solar Energy

Many modern companies are beginning to transfer their production by using solar energy, Boeing developed the concept of covering the entire roof of its new assembly plant 787 solar panels.These thin solar panels in the upper part of the plant, which will easily be able to cover eight football fields, will provide approximately 2.6 megawatts of electricity for the plant, the energy, which will suffice for up to 250 homes. This venture will be the sixth-largest solar installation in the U.S. and the largest in the southeast.Kevin Marsh, president of SCE & G, said: “The company intends to install and maintain more than 18.000 of solar panels on the roof of the building, covering about 10 acres.”SCE & G, which is a subsidiary of Scana, will complement solar power from its own system to meet the energy needs of Boeing.
