Solar, wind power get Pentagon boost

from San Francisco Chronicle

The U.S. Defense Department will encourage companies to build solar power plants and wind farms on 16 million acres of open land surrounding military bases, making each base less dependent on the nation's aging electricity grid. The plan represents a partnership between Defense Department officials and the Interior Department. The land that will be developed was once controlled by the Interior Department's Bureau of Land Management but was withdrawn from public use at the request of the military. The bureau retains some oversight over the land. more
