The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is updating its rules about siting solar project at or near airport facilities. One key aspect of the new rules is guidelines about siting to avoid instances of glare, potentially dangerous reflections off of solar equipment.
Bill Petrak from the FAA will brief attendees on the new rules all developers should be aware of when siting a project near or on airport property.
Cliff Ho from Sandia National Labs has developed an online tool to help developers avoid glare issues while maximizing electrical output. Dr. Ho will demonstrate this Solar Glare Hazard Analysis Tool and provide tips for developers to better site their projects. Register today!
