Apex’s solar business builds on the expertise we’ve gained creating the largest wind energy portfolio in the country.
Our experienced team leverages its existing development, transmission, construction, and asset management capabilities to tailor solar solutions to our customers’ needs. Solar is a perfect complement to our core wind business and the emerging storage sector.
“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.”
— Katherine Hammack, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy, and Environment
Phantom Solar is part of a hybrid wind/solar energy complex serving the 24/7/365 needs of Fort Hood, the largest active-duty armored post in the United States. Under an agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency–Energy, Apex supplies 100% of the military garrison’s energy demand.
The Army has calculated that it will avoid paying approximately $168 million over the life of the agreement with Apex
Fort Hood is now powered by over 50% renewable energy and can prove “additionality” for the construction of the facilities
Microgrid compatibility and complementary renewable resources ensure future energy resiliency and security
