United States Air Force Key Developments

The U.S. Air Force Unveils the Nellis Solar Array II

The U.S. Air Force unveiled the Nellis Solar Array II during a dedication ceremony here Feb. 16, 2016 which combined with Solar Array I makes the installation's photovoltaic field the largest in the Department of Defense. The energy generated between the two is enough to power approximately 9,000 southern Nevada homes as well as approximately 42% of the kilowatts per hour needed to power the installation. The new array is connected to a new substation provided by NV Energy on Nellis Air Force Base. This will allow the installation's energy vulnerability to be reduced by providing a mission-critical redundant power source.
