MARFORRES energy program ventures into the future

New solar photovoltaic panels are installed at the Company F, Anti-Terrorism Battalion in Lafayette, La., Sept. 12, 2012. The solar panels will help Marine Forces Reserve Energy Program managers reach the goal of 15 percent of facilities’ energy generated by renewable sources by 2015. The panels in this facility can generate up to 100 percent energy on sunny days and generate around $2,000 in savings per month. (Courtesy Photo)
