The U.S. Navy’s association with solar power dates back in 2002 andthis time around, it goes huge. The Navy has recently awarded fivecontracts worth up to $100 million for the design, installation andmanagement of solar arrays at Navy and Marine Corps facilities inArizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah.
AECOM, theglobal provider of professional technical and management supportservices is one of the lucky firms to receive a contract from the Navy.For this project, the company will work in collaboration with Solar Power Partners that will finance and own the systems, while AECOM will provide engineering and construction services.
This green initiative is being seen as the Navy’s attempt to reduceits reliance on fossil fuels and cut down on carbon emissions. The U.S.Navy has recently installed a solar roof at Pearl Harbor too. It’s goodto see the Department of Defense to switch over to green energy.
