The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is supporting the Army in reaching important energy security and sustainability goals. Reducing energy dependence, increasing energy efficiency and adopting renewable and alternative energy sources is one of USACE's top priorities. USACE Sacramento District is helping build a military base for the future at Fort Hunter Liggett, California, one of several pilot installations selected to be net zero energy and net zero waste by 2020. Net zero means the installation will create as much energy as it uses, and reuse and recover all of its waste products. The district is nearing completion on the second of four solar microgrid projects at the installation. John Prettyman reports from California.
