Pentagon Green Energy Award Tops $19 Billion in May Contracts

June 9, 2013

The Pentagon bucked the automatic budget-cutting trend last month by going green.

The U.S. Defense Department kicked off a renewable energy program with a contract that may reach $7 billion as the Obama administration seeks to curb the military’s fossil-fuel use.

The agreement, with initial awards to Munich-based Siemens, Chicago-based Exelon’s Constellation Energy Group and three other companies, topped the more than 240 contracts announced by the military in May, according to federal data. Those awards have a maximum value of $19.4 billion, a 2.1 percent increase from April’s total.
