EverPower Wind Holdings, Inc. has been selected to compete for contracts to provide renewable energy to U.S. Army and potentially other Department of Defense facilities. The company has been deemed qualified to develop, finance, design, build and own wind energy plants that will power facilities with a clean, renewable source of domestic power. EverPower Wind Holdings partnered with GE’s wind turbine business and the Tennessee Valley Infrastructure Group (TVIG) to provide a strong team to develop, construct and operate best–in–class wind projects.
The largest single consumer of energy in the world, the Department of Defense is mandated to meet at least 25 percent of its facilities‚Äô energy needs with renewable energy by 2025.
In total, the Department of Defense has committed to invest more than $7 billion to deploy three gigawatts of renewable energy in Army, Navy and Air Force installations by 2025, the equivalent of powering 583,000 homes.
“EverPower is pleased to have been chosen to support the Army Corp and the Department of Defense in their efforts to add renewable energy to their energy supply,” said Jim Spencer, EverPower Wind Holdings CEO. “We believe our company; along with our partners, is uniquely qualified to help the Army and DOD achieve their goal of energy security and long–term power savings from locally sited wind turbines.”
