The U.S. military recognizes the vital role that renewable energy plays in protecting our national security, and now the Army is taking another important step to ensure that one of our most mission-critical bases is safe. On a historic June morning, dozens of officials gathered at Fort Hood, the largest active-duty armored U.S. military base in the world, to commemorate the start of operations for Phantom Solar and Cotton Plains Wind. Apex Clean Energy developed both projects, which generate roughly 65 megawatts of clean energy and supply about half of Fort Hood’s current annual energy consumption.
