Lehigh Valley airport authority says some of its properties will be evaluated for solar fields

The board that runs Lehigh Valley International Airport and a Denver-based company are evaluating some airport sites for use as solar fields. Pivot Energy will consider Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority sites in North Catasauqua, East Allen Township, and Allentown. The plan is preliminary but could result in $4.1 million for the LNAA over 20 years.
Some of the land is being leased for farming now.
