Fort Huachuca to get large solar array

Apr. 25, 2014 - 06:00AM   |  

SIERRA VISTA, ARIZ. — The federal government, a utility and a private developer are teaming up to provide Fort Huachuca with a large solar array that will supply the Army base in southeastern Arizona with a quarter of its electricity needs.

Army Assistant Secretary Katherine Hammack says the solar array at the base in Sierra Vista will be the largest on a U.S. military installation.

The project is a joint effort between the Army, the federal General Services Administration, Tucson Electronic Power and developer E.ON Climate and Renewables.

According to Friday’s announcement of the project, Tucson Electric Power will fund, own, maintain and operate the array, and contract with E.ON for the design, engineering, procurement and construction.

Fort Huachuca is the home of several intelligence and communications commands and units.
