LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — A parking garage at BWI airport is home to a new solar power array.

Airport officials plan to unveil the new 505 kilowatt system atop BWI’s Daily Garage on Thursday. The project is a joint venture between BWI Thurgood Marshall International Airport and Pepco Energy Services.

The solar energy system was built on a canopy on the top level of the nine-story garage. The system is tied into the airport’s electrical distribution system and power produced by the solar panels will offset power the garage’s electricity use.
