On 27 January 2019 Voice of America reported:

Close by, a huge billboard proclaims the airport's status as the world's first airport fully powered by solar energy.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and government, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
