Airport Solar Project Breaking Ground

MEDFORD, Ore. — A project to make the Rogue Valley International Medford Airport more eco-friendly will begin this week.

The project will include a solar-electric system, mounted over the parking toll booths. It will also cut down the airport’s large electric bill.

Money to fund the project comes from a $100,000 grants from Pacific Power, awarded to the Medford Airport back in January.
