Solar panels help Hunter Liggett near energy independence By Carlos Lazo, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers www.army.mil March 12, 2012SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District is nearing completion on a new solar microgrid at Fort Hunter Liggett near King City, Calif., which will be capable of generating up to one megawatt of power.
One megawatt is enough energy to power 250 to 300 homes at once. The solar grids that provide that power will also shade for more than 100 military vehicles.
"It's going to serve a dual purpose of providing the power and providing shelter for the trucks as well," said Bob Roy, project engineer with the Sacramento District.
Scheduled to be completed in mid-April, the microgrid is the first of four planned microgrids at the post currently being overseen by the Sacramento District. The district awarded an $8.4 million contract for construction of the microgrid in September 2010. It's one way the district is playing a key role in helping the post achieve a net-zero status.
