solar power gets the might of the u.s. military behind it
The military suddenly faced the need for budget cuts and long-term cost reductions to switch to solar energy.

The first solar panel probe to be launched into outer space was launched from Cape Kennedy in Florida during the \"space race\" in the 1960 s.
Many old, reliable photovoltaic solar-
The power satellite is still sent back there (decidedly low-tech)
Compared with today\'s satellite technology, information.
Q: What does this have to do with the United States? S.
The military is now installing photovoltaic solar panels at exponential speed based on your askA: Price.
Production as land
The number of solar panels has increased. -
Prices fell sharply.
In fact, the price of solar components has fallen so fast that some large solar manufacturers have gone bankrupt. -
Can\'t stay in the market. Lower priced (PV solar-specific)
Materials, manufacturing costs and technology all contributed to a sharp drop in prices. The U. S.
The military suddenly faced the need for budget cuts and long-term cost reductions, turning to an old, reliable partner ---solar power.
In October 2010, the United StatesS.
The US Navy has set a goal that by 2020 half of its onshore energy needs will come from renewable sources.
Space and Naval Warfare System Command (SPAWAR)
The complex in San Diego, California has just completed the installation of one.

California is installing a photo
Photovoltaic solar power plants have passed for a month-
Annual electricity purchase agreement (PPA)
Between SunPower and the United StatesS Navy.
Under the terms of the agreement, there is no upfront fee for the Navy.
The plant is expected to produce 13.
The power grid in California is 78 MW, which meets the energy needs of NAWS China Lake.
Zero capital investment, giving up land that could not have been used, the Navy will reduce costs by saving about $13 million (
Next 20 years)
On their NAWS China Lake electricity bill, pay a discount on the electricity bill.
In his State of the Union address on January 24, 2012, President Obama said,The U. S.
The Air Force is entering the photo-
Photovoltaic solar business--making the U. S.
In January, the Environmental Protection Agency ranked among the top 25 Green Power Partners.
31,2012 because it is one of the main buyers of green energy in the United States.
At the Colorado Springs Air Force Academy, a six-megawatt photovoltaic solar power plant is running and the power generation capacity is already increasing.
The United States started in 1999. S.
The military has installed solar energy systems at many bases, including the Neris Air Force Base in Nevada, Pearl Harbor, Fort dixburg, corondo Island, and the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs ---among others.
S. Military forces often set a foundation and precedent for other countries.
This will certainly be the case with solar energy.
City and utilities have carefully noted the PPA model used by the navy and air force in dealing with utilities.
Boulder City, Nevada has negotiated a pending PPA agreement to lease 8000 acres of urban land for solar power plants-
Upon completion, 1400 megawatts of electricity will be generated.
The financial situation in Boulder is not so good.
The municipal budget of 2011 per cent is approximately $25 million and $96.
Debt of 2 million
However, leased land is increased by 12 million per year
Total $0. 48 billion for contract duration)
It will thrive and pay off its debts.
Two solar companies pay in advance-a total of $8.
$5 million--as a non-
Refundable down payment for leased land items.
The third company involved in the solar rental opportunity proposed a non-
A refundable check of $500,000 is sent to the city in order to upgrade the service. The U. S.
The army, led by the Navy and the Air Force, has developed an exciting and adequate
Transferable photovoltaic solar model-
A person who may let the sun work for us in a way we never imagined.
