DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF News) – The Army’s first hybrid renewable energy project is generating power both on and off post. The Department of Defense-related project in Fort Hood includes about 63,000 solar panels that provide fifteen megawatts of power.
The project also features the Phantom Solar Farm, which produces 65 megawatts of alternating current. A nearby wind farm in Floyd county has 21 turbines that support the project.
The program is expected to produce enough electricity to provide up to 40 percent of Fort Hood’s needs
