Fort Lewis Buys Wind Energy

October 2004 - The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) will supply the U.S. Army with green power to meet about 5% of the electricity needs of Fort Lewis in Washington State. Under an agreement with Tacoma Power, Fort Lewis will buy about 12 million kWh of wind energy certificates from BPA sourced from wind farms located in eastern Washington and Oregon. Fort Lewis serves more than 25,000 soldiers and civilian workers and uses about the same amount of electricity as a city the size of Olympia, WA.
