Boeing to build 787’s entirely with renewable energy

Boeing’s new 787 plant in South Carolina will be powered primarily by 18,000 solar panels on the roof of the mammoth facility. They will use renewable energy credits to purchase any needed renewable energy. Production will start this summer.

  1. Then the 787’s can spend their entire life burning up lage amounts of fossil fuel creating a nice big carbon footprint. Keeping the need for large tracts of land to be turned over to runways, car parks and hotels. The carbon foot print supporting that eco built plane is enormous.
