Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) has drawn up plans to install solar panels on the rooftop of the airport’s parking lot at an estimated cost of Rs 200 million. CIAL has already invited bids from companies for implementing the project. The plan includes the construction of a parking area in front of the new international terminal with a capacity to accommodate 5,000 cars. Work on the project is expected to be completed in six months. The proposed system will generate 2.4 MW of solar energy.
