A U.S. Army base In Texas sees more renewable power. According to Power Engineering, Apex Clean Energy marked the completion of a hybrid energy project to deliver power to Fort Hood near Killeen, Texas. The development draws wind power from the 50.4MW Cotton Plains Wind project and solar from the 15.4-MW Phantom Solar facility. The combination is the first hybrid renewable project to serve the U.S. Army. Fort Hood is the largest active-duty armored post in the country, and directly employs over 60,000 people. ACE Power, a subsidiary of Apex, will deliver the energy required by Fort Hood through three substations. The design includes microgrid-ready capabilities, providing the ultimate energy security of independence from the grid as necessary. ‘Clean and reliable renewable energy can help make our military bases stronger, more robust, and more adaptable to the threats of a changing world,’ said Mark Goodwin, president and CEO of Apex. ‘The vision shown here will be increasingly recognized as other bases and branches of our military seek to replicate the economic performance and energy security provided this project.’”.
