Operating, Installation & Maintenance Efficiencies for Municipal Airport
First Completely Solar Airfield Lighting System in State of Florida



The initial project plan called for lighting the Belle Glade taxiway and runway following a runway paving project. The lighting would be added at an unspecified future date when funding was available; this was due to the high cost of installing a traditional hard-wired lighting system. Project engineering firm, Kimley-Horne, investigated the installation and operational cost efficiencies of Avlite’s solar, pilot activated lighting system for Belle Glade.




The Solution

The Avlite total airfield solution provided substantial cost savings, and when combined with grant money from the State of Florida, Belle Glade Municipal Airport was able to include all of the airfield’s lighting as part of the initial paving project.

Belle Glade now offers an enhanced flight experience for existing flight operations and anticipates expanding its general aviation business as well as attracting new charter services.
