Solar project at Fort Hunter Liggett
The Sacramento District is nearing completion on the second of four solar microgrid projects at Fort Hunter Liggett, Calif. Phase 1 was completed in April 2012 and generates one megawatt of power, enough energy to power 250 to 300 homes. Phase 2, scheduled for completion in May 2013, will generate an additional one megawatt of power. Along with the energy production, the panel arrays form a canopy that will shade the majority of the post’s vehicles. Fort Hunter Liggett is one of six pilot installations selected by the U.S. Army to be net zero energy, meaning the installation will create as much energy as it uses.
