The two-year deal will cover about 16 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year.

Through the deal, Robins Air Force Base, a logistics center that is also the largest industrial complex in Georgia, will purchase about 40 percent of the total renewable energy sold through the Georgia Power Green Energy program, which includes energy generated from solar, landfill methane and biomass production.

In addition to the purchase of off-site renewable energy, Robins Air Force Base on Dec. 18 unveiled a 25-kilowatt solar panel at the base, according to a press release (see image).

The $425,000 solar panel is a new model that incorporates sensor technology that allows it to automatically track the sun with concentrated photovoltaic array technology that amplifies the sun’s power 500 to 1,000 times.
