Fort Riley Launches Solar   

The third phase of the solar energy program at Fort Riley was kicked of and will bring nearly 17MW of renewable energy to power more than 40% homes when it is completed. 

For this phase, Onyx Construction will deliver approximately 4.4MW with two ground mount solar arrays located in the housing community. The project will incorporate a microgrid that can provide backup power to housing and other mission-critical facilities in an emergency.

When phase three is complete, the Corvias solar program will deliver more than 38MW of power across Fort Riley, Fort Meade, and Aberdeen Proving Ground. The military family housing partnership between Corvias and the U.S. Army at Fort Riley supports the U.S. Army’s energy-independence goals.

“Corvias’ energy services are an extension of our commitment to helping our partners achieve their goals while materially improving the community in which we live and serve,” said Corvias Managing Director Peter Sims in a statement. “The Fort Riley solar program is a great example of how the Military Housing Privatization Initiative can contribute to the greater goals of the Army such as providing 100% carbon pollution-free electricity for installation needs by 2030.”

At Fort Riley, Corvias recently delivered 32 renovated and completely reconfigured homes in the Rim Rock neighborhood and a $12 million energy upgrade project across 3,800 homes.
