7,000 MW of Solar Energy Potential on California Military Bases via @reworld

If solar were deployed on all the suitable land and 25 percent of the likely suitable land, seven thousand (7,000) megawatts (MW) of energy could be generated — equivalent to the output of seven nuclear power plants and 30 times the energy consumed by the bases today! The study made an in-depth review of seven DoD installations in California’s Mojave and Colorado deserts: Fort Irwin, Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, the Marine Corps’ Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range, Edwards Airport Base, Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow, Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms and Naval Air Facility El Centro. It also reviewed the potential for solar at two Air Force bases in Nevada, Creech and Nellis. It excluded locations based on conflict with the base’s core mission and land needs, the presence of cultural and biological resources, and other conflicts as ...
