Why Put Solar on Government and Military Facilities?


The federal government is the nation’s largest energy consumer, spending billions of dollars each year to power its permanent military installations around the country. NCI Solar has partnered with various federal agencies to install solar energy systems for government and military properties across the United States.


State governments are faced with declining tax revenues and increased pressure on budgets. Solar projects allow state governments the opportunity to reduce operational costs and develop predictable electrical cost budgets, offering protection from annual utility cost increases. In addition, many states, like Virginia, have enacted laws and policies to dramatically increase the production and consumption of renewable energy. Virginia has a goal of 30% renewable energy by 2030 and 100% carbon-free energy by 2050.


Like state governments, local governments are very concerned about declining tax revenues and cost exposure of utility rate increases. City and county budget planners are excited that solar energy provides cost savings while demonstrating strong financial and environmental stewardship to its taxpayers.
