Gulf Power is partnering with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force to build solar energy farms at three different facilities across Northwest Florida.
The projects could be in service as early as December 2016.
“This is an important collaboration between Gulf Power, the Navy and the Air Force,” said Stan Connally, Gulf Power president and CEO. “As military installations seek solutions to promote renewable energy generation, we have worked alongside our military customers to help provide cost-effective solutions — and all our customers will reap the benefit.”
Like the three Army bases before it, solar power from the Navy Base at Kings Bay
will go into Georgia Power’s grid.
How about Air Force bases next, such as Moody AFB?
And how about start building 30 MW solar farms throughout the state?
Curiously, there’s no press release by either Georgia Power or the Navy
about this project.
