Reflecting on What Military Sacrifices Have Made Possible

Reflecting on What Military Sacrifices Have Made Possible

Memorial Day is a time to reflect and give thanks to the members of the U.S. Armed Forces who lost their lives in service to their country. The willingness of men and women to make the ultimate sacrifice while defending this country and its ideals makes it possible for us to enjoy a free society; one where the ability to succeed is limited only by one’s own motivation and vision. The military also provides a pipeline for new hires, enabling companies like Applied Materials to tap into their skills to push the limits of science and technology even further.
7,000MW of Solar Energy Potential on CA Military Bases

7,000MW of Solar Energy Potential on CA Military Bases

A recent Department of Defense (DoD) study found huge potential for solar deployment on military bases in California. Responding to a Congressional request, the DoD spent a year evaluating the potential for affordable solar energy on military bases in California and Nevada. Although 96% of the land on the bases was deemed incompatible with solar, the DoD identified 25,000 acres that are “suitable” and 100,000 acres that are “likely” or “questionably” suitable for solar.If solar were deployed on all the suitable land and 25% of the likely suitable land, seven thousand (7,000) megawatts (MW) of energy could be generated – equivalent to the output of seven nuclear power plants and 30 times the energy consumed by the bases today!
