On April 5, the commander of Fort Bliss in Texas announced that it will soon begin work on the largest renewable energy project in the history of the U.S. military. The 20 MW solar farm will be power much of the installation, including division headquarters. Fort Bliss has a goal of becoming a “net zero” user of energy, with the ultimate goal of producing all of its own energy. Already, the installation has the Army’s second largest solar array, and is also pursuing projects using wind and geothermal, as well as more efficient use of water and increased recycling. The new 20 MW solar farm is being undertaken in partnership with El Paso Electric.
