Report: DoD bases potential hotbeds for solar development

A new Defense Department report finds solar-power development on military bases and installations in the Western United States could generate as much solar energy as seven nuclear power plants. By working with private industry and renting out unused land on bases to serve as energy testbeds, the department could reap as much as $100 in revenue and reduced energy costs and rent payments. DoD spends $4 billion a year on energy costs.

Let the sunshine!

The U.S. Army has picked two firms -- Clark Energy Group of Bethesda, and Acciona Solar Power of Henderson, Nevada -- to help develop and build the largest solar power array in the Department of Defense. It will be built at Fort Irwin, in California's Mojave Desert. When complete, the solar farm will generate 500 megawatts using photovoltaic cells, and solar concentrators, which turns the heat of the sun into electricity.
