Defense Department Leads the Way for Solar on Federal Lands

February 29, 2012
In his February 15 "Plugged In" article for the Daily Journal of Commerce, David Petersen discusses the results of a new Department of Defense study on the potential for solar energy development on federal lands. The report evaluates the solar energy potential of nine military bases in California and Nevada. Smart development of even the small percentage of military land suitable for solar can produce tremendous results for both energy security and national security.
