ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - Holloman Air Force Base is partnering with El Paso Electric to build a solar facility.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2eDwTOZ ) that the new 5 megawatt facility will be dedicated to the base and is estimated to cost $13 million to construct. Groundbreaking is planned for December and the facility is expected to be fully operational by 2017.
