“The 30-acre, 6-megawatt system at this site, where Air Force cadets and officers alike engage in thousands of training flights each year, will be a testament to the fact that solar power provides a secure, independent power source in the U.S. Reliability and quality are the hallmarks of SunPower systems.  We look forward to working with the Springs Utilities and the Air Force Academy on this very exciting project.”
