    NEW ENERGY IS THE BEST DEFENSE

    Pentagon bets heavily on sun, wind with major energy projects

    Joby Warrick, September 18, 2015 (Washington Post)

    “…From Florida to California, defense officials are signing contracts with local utilities for huge solar and wind ventures inside military bases or on land nearby…[The Pentagon] is seeking to generate its own power in part to enhance energy security at a time when traditional electric grids are under the threat of cyberattacks…[The surge] comes as states are grappling with…Clean Power Plan regulations adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency…[that require cut backs] on pollutants from power plants beginning in 2022…[T]he military’s investment in renewables could make it easier for some states to comply…[and] utility companies are embracing the Pentagon’s solar projects…For the Pentagon, the motivations are more complex. In addition to the congressional mandate, the Defense Department is responding to two emerging threats to its operations around the world: cyberterrorism and climate change. Multiple internal studies have documented the military’s vulnerability to disruptions to the power supply as well as long-term impacts from global warming…[and] going solar will probably yield substantial cost-savings in the long run…” click here for more
