Fort Bliss working torward energy independence
Its amazing that we are still dependent on foreign states for our energy. The military should be the first energy independent organization under the US government to prove out the concepts and create markets of scale to be able to implement scaled down solutions for residential markets.
While energy savings might be nice for civilians, it could be absolutely vital for the military. For example, if a terrorist attack dumped the electricity grid, an energy-independent Fort Bliss — or any military facility — would still be able to function and respond.
