The Army has awarded Siemens a $16.8 million task order to install a solar power system at an Army rocket range in New Mexico, Siemens announced Wednesday.

Siemens said its federal business organization, Siemens Government Technologies, will install Army’s largest-to-date solar power system at White Sands Missile Range under an energy savings performance contract.

President Obama has directed federal agencies to use these contracts to make $2 billion in energy efficiency upgrades over the next two years.

Siemens expects the solar system to provide the Army nearly 10,000 solar renewable energy credits annually.

The Army Corps of Engineers expects the system to achieve 10.8 percent renewable energy by the end of 2012 and beat a 2013 federal mandate by more than three percentage points.

Judy Marks, president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies, said the project aligns with the Army’s Energy Security and Net Zero objectives.
