California’s Array Brings new Solar Energy to U.S. Navy
China Lake is an area 120 miles from Los Angeles and home to the Naval Air Weapons station. Looking for a cost effective renewable energy source for the Navy resulted in a genius plan to work with the developer, SunPower, and take advantage of the California incentive program. Due to the twenty year duration, the plan allows the Navy to utilize and buy solar array power on their land at a thirty percent discount. The long term savings that we (and that’s the citizens of the U.S.) expect to get is projected at $13 million, over the twenty year extrapolation. The area pegged for the solar array is around 6,777 acres.
