The U.S. Air Force announced the completion of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system at Nellis Air Force Base. A joint project of the U.S. Air Force, MMA Renewable Ventures, LLC, SunPower Corporation, and Nevada Power Company, the 14-megawatt (MW) system will generate more than 30 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually and supply approximately 25 percent of the total power used at the base.

"As the largest consumer of energy in the federal government, the Air Force is well-positioned to promote both solar technology and new approaches to its implementation." --William Anderson, Assistant Secretary, U.S. Air Force
