“The project at Fort Hood, the Army’s first hybrid and largest single renewable energy project to date, is an excellent example of the extraordinary results we can achieve through collaboration. The Army will continue to partner with private-sector entities such as Apex Clean Energy, Inc., to expand renewable energy initiatives on our installations. By working together, we can ensure a sustainable world for future generations.”
