US Army Goes Green

US Army Goes Green
Claudia Cukrov

In an attempt to cut back on fossil-fuel reliance, the US Army has released plans for what would be the world’s biggest solar power plant. Partnering with a private sector 500-megawatt solar thermal plant in Fort Irwin, California the army hopes to increase its use of renewable energy to not only reduce emissions, and costly energy expenses, but bring added security from power disruption.

“This new leadership structure will provide a consistent and steady focus on energy that will provide the oversight required as well as the effective management of energy programs to deliver the greatest return to the Army,” said Secretary of the Army Pete Geren. “We spend over $3 billion every year on energy and the majority of it is spent on our installations. We can significantly reduce our energy consumption by partnering within government and with the private sector to capitalize on the great strides in proven technology that have been developed and implemented across the country.”
