SolarCity and Forest City Military Communities broke ground on a 24 MW solar power project at Ohana Military Communities, which serves Navy Region Hawaii and Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

The companies finished installing the first 700 kW of capacity at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii, and will soon begin installations at Navy Region Hawaii. The project is part of SolarCity’s SolarStrong program, which aims to install solar projects at U.S. military bases. This project is being financed primarily by Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
