The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) will use high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells and modules to power its military base in Savannah, Georgia. The modules, manufactured by a metro-Atlanta based Suniva, Inc., will be used in the roof-mounted photovoltaic (PV) solar system on the Georgia National Guard’s Hunter AASF building and will generate around 160,000kWh per year. According to installer, Solar Energy USA, the array should be installed and operational by the end of Q1 2014. The DOD Georgia’s use of solar power is yet another example of the U.S. military effort to increase the total installed capacity of renewable energy sources from 80 megawatts (MW) in 2013 to more than 3,200 MW by 2025.
