The Army recently began accepting bids for installations of renewable energy for Army bases and facilities. This initiative is part of the Department of Defense plan to become a "net zero" electricity consumer. Forbes reports:
The Army said projects that generate fewer than 4 megawatts would be set aside for small businesses. It will also consider giving preference to small businesses for installations that generate between 4 megawatts and 12 megawatts of electricity but would accept unrestricted bids for projects greater than 12 megawatts.For more on the DoD's commitment to advanced energy, read AEE's Defense Solutions.
