Solar panels for military homes

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of military homes in west Texas and southern New Mexico will be fitted with solar panels.

It's all part of a billion-dollar plan by a California company to bring solar to military installations across the country.

The company announced today they will install the panels at Texas' Fort Bliss and the White
Sands missile range in New Mexico.

The systems are supposed to be capable of off-setting more than half of the electricity typically used in each community.
