Offset Your Carbon Emissions This Holiday Season
Dec 14, 2020
Lets work together to reduce our CO2 footprint! Your Truckee Tahoe Airport District has been developing a Green House Gas Reduction program. The initiatives include not only the many ways the District is attempting to reduce its own carbon footprint, but also our efforts at disseminating information to flight crews and their passengers on ways they can lessen their impact on the environment. Some of the efforts the District has already implemented include: the use of new electric vehicles and bikes around the airfield, installing over 450 solar taxiway lights, using automated LED lighting in hangar rows and on the ramp, designing more efficient flight path procedures, installing passive solar water heating panels for the terminal building, managing the district’s ~2,600 acres of forested land for wildfire prevention and we have more initiatives to come!
