PV Tech reports that “Balfour Beatty Communities — a managing member of military housing projects located at Fort Detrick, Maryland, and Fort Carson, Colorado — and SolarCity have finished the installation of over 18,000 PV panels at Army family housing.”

“The solar panels are located atop multi-family housing, community centers and maintenance facilities at both Fort Detrick and Fort Carson. The PV systems are expected to provide power to around 1,200 housing units across the two bases.”

“SolarCity designed, constructed and will oversee the solar power systems, while the military housing project companies will purchase the power produced by the panels. The systems account for more than 4.7MW of solar power generation capacity.”
