While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    How Texas National Guard Could Go Green

    New Study: Solar, Energy Efficiency Can Help the Texas National Guard Save Money and Water

    Kate Zerenner, August 24, 2016 (Environmental Defense Fund)

    “...[Many Texas defense facilities are in water-stressed counties that could lead to higher water costs and] power production constraints, since it requires a lot of water to produce and move electricity from traditional energy sources like coal and natural gas. Both of these challenges pose a direct threat to the budget and operating capabilities of the [Texas Army National Guard (TXARNG) and threaten its ability to respond to emergencies. But a new report from CNA Analysis & Solutions shows] these same areas have great potential for solar energy, which requires little to no water to meet power needs on-site…By tapping into that potential and pursuing bolder energy efficiency initiatives, TXARNG could ease pressure on the electric grid and reduce utility bills, all while safeguarding residents and precious water supplies…More than 20 of the TXARNG facilities studied have significant solar potential on a daily basis…[I]nvestments in energy efficiency could also be very cost-effective and have the advantage of being independent of location…[A]lthough the study was specific to the Army branch, the results can help inform investment decisions for the entire Texas National Guard. With a strategy laid out, the TXARNG can continue defending not only Texans, but its future energy and water supplies.” click here for more
