Army to Issue $7 billion RFP for Solar, Renewables

You are here


The U.S. Army is surging forward in its push for green energy. Today (August 7) the Army held a media roundtable discussing its plans to issue request for proposals (RFP) for a multi-award task order contract (MATOC) for 1 gigawatt of renewable and alternative energy within the next 30 days. It plans to close the RFP roughly 30 days after that.

While all of the U.S.’s Air Force, Army and Navy have each announced that they plan install 1 gigawatt of renewable energy by 2025, the Army is the first branch of the U.S.’s armed forces to move forward with such a request, according to Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army for installations, energy & environment. “This is the first MATOCH for renewable energy in the federal government,” she said. “So we are certainly breaking new ground here and developing a resource that is available to anyone in the federal government.”
