On Sept. 5, ACC and other key stakeholders met at FAA Headquarters to discuss an upcoming Federal Register Notice (FRN) that provides interim guidance on the FAA review and approval of solar projects at airports.

The guidance will only be applicable to solar applications on airport properties, although there is a desire to educate local communities to use the software for solar facilities located close to airport grounds. The FAA will seek comments from industry representatives on the notice within the next month. If you wish to learn more about this meeting, please contact T.J. Schulz at tjs@acconline.org or 703-683-5900.
