Solar-powered Devil Dogs

Solar Panels soak up the sun's rays and convert it to electric power during an Experimental Forward Operating Base exercise at the Combat Center being conducted by Third Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, based out of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif. The Marines from 3rd Bn., 5th Marines are the first military unit to use nothing but renewable energy to power their systems as they take part in Enhanced Mojave Viper, a month-long, combined arms live fire pre-deployment exercise in the Mojave Desert. After testing is complete, the battalion is scheduled to deploy with this equipment to Afghanistan in the fall.
