Navy Awards $200 Million to Construct 40 MW of Solar Power

March 2010 - The U.S. Navy awarded a $200 million contract to five solar development companies for the construction of up to 40 megawatts (MW) of photovoltaic (PV) power plants in the southwestern United States. The companies, SunEdison, AECOM Energy, Solar Power Partners, Inc., SunPower Corporation, SunDurance Energy LLC, and Chevron Energy Solutions Company, will construct, own, operate, and maintain the PV systems, selling power to the Navy and Marine Corps through power purchase agreements. In October 2009, the U.S. Navy established a goal of producing at least 50 percent of its shore-based energy from renewables by 2020.
