Sustainability Elements


Solar sustainability at Van Nuys Airport began in 2018 when Aeroplex/Aerolease installed solar on their newest hangar on the east side of the airport. At the same time, six other Van Nuys Airport businesses committed to adding solar. These solar projects put energy back into the grid to be used by others.
