The project will receive windpower from the 50.4MW Cotton Plains project in Floyd County and solarpower from the on-base 15.4MW Phantom facility. The project will supply around half of the overall energy demands of the armoured post and help save $168m over the course of its 28-year duration.

Apex Clean Energy's president and chief executive officer (CEO) Mark Goodwin said: “Clean and reliable renewable energy can help make our military bases stronger, more robust, and more adaptable to the threats of a changing world.

“The vision shown here will be increasingly recognised as other bases and branches of our military seek to replicate the economic performance and energy security provided this project.”

"This project will help sustain Fort Hood’s vital missions, assure access to an important resource supply, and support an already impressive portfolio."

As part of the project, Apex's subsidiary ACE Power will deliver energy required by Fort Hood through three substations.

The US Army's strategic integration deputy secretary Richard Kidd IV said: “This project will help sustain Fort Hood’s vital missions, assure access to an important resource supply, and support an already impressive portfolio of alternative and renewable energy projects in the Army.

“But most importantly, this project is a step towards energy security and resiliency, which underwrite the Army’s unique ability to rapidly deploy, employ, and sustain military forces around the globe.”
