The EITF is integral to the Army addressing rising energy security challenges in a budget conscious environment. The organization serves as the central management office to partner with installation staffs for the development of large-scale renewable energy projects 10 megawatts or greater, leveraging private sector financing. Through the EITF, the Army will secure renewable electricity on our installations and help the Army reach its goal of deploying one gigawatt of renewable energy by 2025.
The EITF has developed a series of fact sheets to provide stakeholders with information to include specific project opportunities such as project details, proposed deal structures and information about the installation.
90 MW Solar PV - Georgia 3x30
EITF and Georgia Power are developing three 30 MW alternating current solar PV arrays to be located at Forts Stewart, Gordon and Benning – collectively referred to as “Georgia 3x30.” The Georgia 3x30 project could advance the Army nine percent closer to its commitment to the President of deploying one gigawatt of renewable energy by 2025.
Solar PV - Fort Huachuca, Arizona
The Fort Huachuca renewable energy project in southern Arizona reflects the Army’s commitment to enhance mission effectiveness and provide a sustained, comprehensive strategy for energy security. The solar photovoltaic array is anticipated to exceed the largest solar project in the Department of Defense.
Solar PV Lease - Fort Stewart, Georgia
Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield are the home of the 3rd Infantry Division and combine to be the Army's Premier Power Projection Platform on the Atlantic Coast. Fort Stewart is the largest Army installation east of the Mississippi River with 280,000 acres of land. This project is expected to have an estimated potential solar PV capacity of up to 20 MW.
Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOC) Awardees
This group of companies are pre-qualified under the MATOC and are eligible to bid on future renewable energy task orders. As renewable energy opportunities at Army installations are assessed and validated, a competitive task order Request for Proposal will be issued to this group for the specific technology.
18.6 MW Solar PV - Fort Detrick, Maryland
Fort Detrick is a Net Zero installation with a goal of being Net Zero energy by 2020. The proposed PV system will be designed as "micro-grid ready" so that it may be connected to a future micro-grid and thereby contribute to the overall energy security of the installation.
28 MW Biomass Facility - Fort Drum, New York
Fort Drum provides planning and support for the mobilization and training of almost 80,000 troops annually. The project intends that all electricity from the 28 MW Biomass facility would be consumed by Fort Drum.
15 MW Solar PV - Fort Irwin, California
Fort Irwin National Training Center (NTC) is located in the Mojave Desert of California. This will be the Army’s first renewable energy project in the Mojave Desert.
50 MW Bio-Diesel Power Plant - Schofield Barracks, Hawaii
USAG-HI provides quality services, installation facilities, training and recreational centers to nearly 90,000 soldiers, civilians and family members stationed in Hawaii. USAG-HI is headquartered at Wheeler Army Airfield; Kunia Camp, Schofield Barracks and Wheeler Army Airfield are the three installations that will benefit from this project.
