Solar PV panels help power Nellis AFB
LAS VEGAS -- Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ8), Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup (R) and others recently went to Nellis Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert of southern Nevada to inspect its 140 acre, 17 megawatt solar power system.
I applaud them for investigating solar solutions.
Hopefully officials at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson will wise up and finally start embracing a solar power system for D-M.
Solar power for D-M is a wise solution I proposed a while back as a much cleaner and more intelligent energy option than the polluting trash incinerator the Air Force is considering, and seems to still be pushing over solar.
Let's all hope the dirty trash incinerator idea is killed soon, and help D-M go solar. D-M is fully within legislative district 29, and I will continue to support base sustainability when elected to the State House of Reps.
Producing clean renewable energy from the sun protects our natural and national security, especially with smartly located PVs on rooftops or on already significantly disturbed land.
