  • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District plays a key role in
helping the Army achieve its goal of developing net-zero installations.
Net-zero is an initiative that aims to reduce total resource consumption
(energy, water and waste) on an installation down to an effective rate of
zero. At Fort Hunter Liggett in Central California, the district is nearing
completion of the first of four new solar micro grids. The first, which is
scheduled to be complete in April of 2012, is capable of generating up to
one megawatt of power for the post, enough energy to power 250 to 300 homes. Also available in high definition.
  • Renewable energy is a major focus for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It reduces greenhouse emissions and dependence on fossil fuels.  The Corps is using alternative energy like biofuel, wind power, solar and geothermal. This renewable energy mix will provide 25 percent of the electricity used by the Corps.  This next report takes us to San Fransisco where biofuel is powering a Corps vessel.
