Army to install solar-power arrays at 3 Ga. bases
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Army says three of its bases in Georgia will soon be generating some of their electricity from solar power.
The Army announced Thursday it plans to install arrays of solar panels at Fort Stewart near Savannah, Fort Benning outside Columbus and Fort Gordon in Augusta. It’s part of an Army-wide goal to increase its reliance on renewable energy.
Georgia Power will finance, build and operate the solar arrays at the three Army posts. Some electrical generation is expected in 2015, with all arrays being completed in 2016. The Army will provide land for all three solar arrays, and will buy the electricity they produce from Georgia Power.
The Army says once the projects are complete, 18 percent of the electricity it consumes in Georgia will come from renewable sources.
