First DOD architectural wind turbines at Laughlin

A picture shows the first Department of Defense’s architectural wind-energy system, consisting of six turbines, after its installation at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. The project, which started in the summer of 2006 and was completed mid-December of 2007, was driven by the Energy Policy Act and Executive Order 2007-01-24, which requires all bases to strive to have 7.5 percent of renewable energy sources by the year 2013. The initial demo project, which costs more that $39,000, is now completed, and according to officials here, it is the first of its kind in Air Education and Training Command, the Air Force and DoD.
