John Glenn Columbus International Airport (IATA: CMH) has joined an elite group of US airports in sourcing 100% of its energy supply from renewable sources. The move involves an energy solution made in collaboration with Worthington Energy Consultants and provided by community partner AEP Energy.

Joe Nardone, president & CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, commented: “The nearly 24,000 passengers who travel daily through John Glenn International can feel good about the green energy powering their airport experience.

“With a new rental car facility opening in 2021, and with other airport developments in support of the growing Columbus Region, we appreciate our energy partners helping us move to 100% renewable energy.”

The Columbus Regional Airport Authority expects to save almost $13 million in energy costs at John Glenn International and Bolton Field Airport – a general aviation facility – which is also covered by the fixed-rate agreement that was signed while the market was near all-time lows.
