Commandant wants lean, mean Corps to go green

A Marine safely stows a solar panel after a day of drawing in the suns thermal energy and converting it into useable power via a Ground Renewable Expeditionary Energy Network System. After being collected by the solar panels, the energy passes through a control box, where a GREENS system operator can charge up to four lithium batteries at a time.
