US Army to build the Worlds largest solar energy farm
It's next to impossible to get the Liberal Media to report anything but negative and cynical stories about the men and women who serve our nation, so I thought I would post this media advisory on this great website so all you great Americans out there can help pass along all the "news that fit to print" that the media will undoubtly ignore for more negative, inflamatory and partisan rhetoric.

FORT BLISS, TEXAS— New electric technology coming to FortBliss is expected to lower the cost of solar power nation wide.
FortBlissNavalPostgraduateSchool and Army Corps of Engineers, has been selected to be the site for the introduction of three new technologies in a phased approach that will develop the largest solar energy installation in the world. The three technologies are an Extractor, which extracts electrons from solar panels rather than the sun having to push them out of the panels; Inverter, which converts Direct Current (DC), which solar panels provide, into Alternating Current (AC), which we actually use, at nearly twice the efficiency of regular inverters; and a Control System, which controls the overall energy system. , in cooperation with the
The new technology from NPS is focused on cutting the cost of solar energy in half. Presently the cost per kilowatt hour is about 18 to 25 cents; the goal is to reduce it to 10 cents or less per kilowatt hour. In addition, the technology allows for the collection of power from sunrise to sunset, adding hours during the day when regular solar energy systems will not function. The technology also allows for solar energy systems to function in overcast, cloudy conditions; something solar panels are not usually capable of doing.
The three new technologies, as yet, are not on the market. So far, they have been proven to work in the laboratory and FortBlissFortBliss will turn the Army green. The Army will turn Department of Defense green, and in turn will turn the entire country green. has been selected to conduct the field trials. If the trials are proven to work in the field,
Additionally, the testing is expected to prove the new technology’s ability to provide renewable energy at a cost that is on parity with grid power and to advance the renewable energy industry to the point where the U.S. reaches energy independence. Media are invited to see this very FIRST demonstration of this exotic technology, Tuesday, Oct 17.-####-
