several U. S. Department of Defense projects located in Georgia that make
use of renewable energy.  The DoD Is the nation’s largest energy user.  In

fuel use by improving energy efficiency and shifting to renewable energy
such as biomass, hydropower, geothermal, wind, and solar to meet
operational and installation needs.

Mr. Houser is Georgia Power Company’s Senior Project Manager for the
development and construction of 3 x 30MW Army Solar facilities at Fort
Benning, Fort Gordon and Fort Stewart. These projects are scheduled to
