By Editors of Power Engineering

Three Florida military bases are constructing solar projects with a combined 120 MW of capacity.

The three bases that are installing these projects include Eglin Air Force Base, Naval Air Station Pensacola’s Saufley Outlying Field and Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s Holley Outlying Field, reported the Northwest Florida Daily News.

All three of the solar facilities, developed by Gulf Power and Coronal Energy, are expected to be finished this summer.

Energy produced by the solar developments will be used by Gulf Power and its customers.
