El Paso Electric is building a 20 MW solar farm at Fort Bliss in Texas; a major step toward making the installation net zero – producing as much energy as it consumes. The solar farm is expected to be completed in 2015. Fort Bliss is already home to the U.S. Army’s second-largest, 1.4 MW solar array. It has also installed a 13.4 MW rooftop solar on housing posts. In addition, another 20 MW contract with El Paso Electric is being discussed, as well as a plan with the city of El Paso to convert waste to energy. Read more from the U.S. DoD website.
