Helmand province in Afghanistan is not the most desirable place for the promotion of environmental energy projects. But the Marines who came to this part of the country to fight have announced reductions in fuel consumption by nearly 90 percent.

Last September, the Fifth Regiment of Marines
in the district has received a set of solar panels known – National
expeditionary renewable energy system.

They are eco-friendly and increase their tactical
power because they will be able to have energy even when conventional power
supply is cut, or when there is a danger of attack. These systems have not been
previously used in military purposes; therefore it is still an open question
how it will work.

Sergeant David Doty proudly announced that they
now consume 2.5 gallons a day instead of 20 gallons per day. The more fuel savings
by solar systems the less likely they are to be endangered by having trucks bring
new supplies over unsafe roads. The solar panels have also enabled the Marines
to use less used generators at night; reducing noise that reveals their
position.
