US Army Builds its Largest On-Site Solar Array
The US Army is developing a solar array that will provide about 25 percent of the annual installation electricity requirement of Fort Huachuca, Ariz. This will be the largest solar array in the department of defense on a military installation, according to the Army.
The Fort Huachuca Renewable Energy Project is a joint effort between the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force, Fort Huachuca and the General Services Administration.
Tucson Electric Power will fund, own, maintain and operate the project, and contract with E.ON Climate and Renewables for the design, engineering, procurement and construction. Commercial operation of the solar array is projected to commence in late 2014.
