Fort Rucker's solar array

FORT RUCKER, Ala. -- A photovoltaic array being installed at Fort Rucker is expected to save the Army thousands and help the installation take a step toward achieving net zero status. The 51-kilowatt array is connected to Alabama Power's electrical grid, so any energy that is generated at Hatch Stage Field that isn't used can be fed back to the grid. (Source: Army, 11/15/12) Fort Rucker is the primary flight training base for Army aviation. It's near Dothan, Ala.
