Post breaks ground on largest Army renewable energy project

Post breaks ground on largest Army renewable energy project


Fort Hood, federal and local officials broke ground here during a ceremony for a massive energy project for the installation, Jan. 28. The ceremony, fittingly on a sunny and windy day in Central Texas, marked the beginning of the largest renewable energy project in the Army to date.

"Well, I expected it to be sunny in Texas, but I didn't quite expect this much wind," said Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army, Installations, Energy and Environment. "So, it is a wonderful thing and it certainly emphasizes the reason why we have this project here."

The project, the largest and first of its kind, will include both an on-post solar farm and an off-site wind turbine farm, which has the capacity to generate 65 megawatts of electricity for the installation, saving taxpayer money during the duration of the contract.
