Fort Carson is an active U.S. Army installation supporting 10 different military units with more than 19,000 active-duty personnel.

This 2 megawatt application is a fixed-tilt, ground- mounted photovoltaic array with nearly 27,600 flat- plate, thin-film modules that are expected to produce energy efficiently for up to 40 years.

Covering almost 12 acres on top of a former landfill, the installation produces 3,200 megawatt hours annually, enough to power nearly 201 homes.
