Marines: More Solar=Less Casualties

Posted on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011 at 5:04 pm by Solar Energy USA

From Marines.Mil:

Marines deployed to the forward edge of the combat zone are reliant on the fuel, water and other expendable energy sources that are provided to them by combat support elements, and that reliance comes with a cost. A study conducted by the Marine Corps Combat Development Command found that for every 50 convoys in Afghanistan one Marine is either wounded or killed. Reducing the need for logistics simply means saving lives.
