Report: Airport would bring spenders to the South Shore; critic contends history shows airlines wouldn’t make it

If commercial service returns to the Lake Tahoe Airport in the coming years, it may equate to $111 million a year in revenue, mainly from visitor spending on the South Shore between 2008 and 2012. That’s what consultant Nolan Rosall of RRC Associates in Boulder, Colo., projected, along with an estimate of 538,580 passengers coming and going to and from the area. Airlines including Allegiant Air, PSA and Vanguard have tried and failed. But there’s potential to attract regional jets seating between 70 and 138 passengers, Rosall added.

Fresno Yosemite International Airport soon will be home to the largest solar power system of any airport in the country — and under a plan approved this week by the Fresno City Council, it shouldn’t cost the city a dime. That’s because the 2-megawatt, $16 million solar system expected to be completed by March 2008 will be owned and operated by the New Jersey-based company that will build it, WorldWater & Power Corp.
