The U.S. Army says it will start development of a solar array that will provide about 25% of the annual installation electricity requirement of Fort Huachuca, Ariz.
Tucson Electric Power will fund, own, maintain and operate the project. E.ON is providing for the design, engineering, procurement and construction. Commercial operation is expected later this year.
‘Energy is an installation priority,’ says Maj. Gen. Robert Ashley, commanding general of Fort Huachuca. ‘The project will provide reliable access to electricity for daily operations and missions moving forward.’
