Fort Hood will provide an update interview opportunity for its Solar/Wind farm

FORT HOOD, Texas -- The Fort Hood Director of Public Works, Brian Dosa, will host a media availability at 1 p.m. Nov. 2 providing an update on the construction of the Army's first hybrid renewable energy project that includes both off- and on-post power generation.

Once complete, the project will provide Fort Hood with an on-site solar system providing 15 megawatts and the remaining energy coming from a 50 megawatt off-site wind facility. The hybrid project will supply nearly half of Fort Hood’s power and is estimated to avoid $168 million in energy costs over the next three decades.

The contractor who is building the facilities is Apex Clean Energy. 

Media who wish to cover this event, must register here. On Nov. 2, media should meet public affairs representatives at the Fort Hood visitors' center south-side parking lot at 12:30 p.m.
