D-M hosts 16.4 MW solar array ribbon cutting ceremony by Airman 1st Class Chris Massey 355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs February 14, 2014DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. -- A ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Davis-Monthan photovoltaic solar array project was held here, Feb. 13.
The 16.4 megawatt solar array is the largest of its kind on any U.S. Department of Defense installation.
"It is satisfying and gratifying, after 25 years in this industry, the leadership that has been shown and continues to be shown by the Air Force and DOD in leading and showing the way forward around a clean cost effective energy future," said Bill Green, Chief Executive Officer of MIC Solar Energy Holdings LLC.
In 2010, Davis-Monthan entered into an agreement with SunEdison, LLC to design, finance, build, operate and maintain the array on 170 acres of underutilized land at two locations on base. The agreement will provide approximately 35 percent of the base's electricity requirements, at an economically beneficial rate for 25 years, reducing base utility costs by an average of $500,000 annually.
