As of 2015, Cochin International Airport in southern India became the first airport to run on 100% solar power. The project required the installation of 46,000 solar panels, with an initial capacity of 12 MW. This was soon expanded to 15.5 MW, as the solar panels were producing more electricity than was required by the airport, allowing for the excess electricity to be sold back to the grid. In 2017 they confirmed plans to expand their solar project, to ensure they could provide enough power for a new terminal being built at the airport.
