*I don't know, but it's been said!*
*Air Force geeks can use their head!*
From the largest solar power project in the UK, to the largest solar power project anywhere!
The top-guns at Nellis Air Force Base will soon harness Nevada's sunshine to charge 140 acres of photovoltaic arrays! Come year's end, when Nellis's solar plant comes on-line, it will be the largest solar energy provider in the world. Now that's what I call "Shock and Awe."
Once the mission's accomplished, Nellis will gather 30% of its energy from photovoltaics: 15 megawatts of electricity. The 7,215 soldiers who call Nellis their home will save over a million dollars a year on their electric bills.
The players in this coalition of the willing include SunPower Corp., Nevada Power, MMA Renewable Ventures, and, of course, the U.S. tax payer. In order to fund the plant, the Air Force and its corporate partners will take advantage of millions of dollars in both federal and state subsidies.Via RenewableEnergyAccess
