Over the past few years, the U.S. military has worked on one renewable energy project after another -- and it's to their benefit. Not only does it cut down on energy costs at military bases, but it's also a reliable source of energy in locations where getting fuel shipments can be dangerous at best.
The U.S. Army has decided to become more organized in its renewable energy pursuits by creating a task force assigned purely to developing these projects. The Energy Initiatives Office Task Force will work with developers over the next decade to build renewable energy power plants at U.S. military sites. The task force has a 10-year budget of up to $7.1 billion.
The task force will be established by September 15 of this year and will assist the Army in its goal of getting 25 percent of its energy from renewables by 2025. The projects will each be about 10 MW in size, though details of which type of renewable energy will be used and where have not been disclosed.
