Ascension Island Airfield energy infrastructure
Highlights of the Energy Resilience and Conservation Invest Program project recently awarded at Ascension Island Airfield, a British territory more than 5,000 miles southeast of Patrick Space Force Base, Florida, and about 500 miles south of the equator. The airfield will receive energy infrastructure upgrades through an ERCIP contract that includes the replacement of six wind turbines with a single 900 Kwhr wind turbine generator. The renewable energy resource will supplement generator production and provide an alternate energy source if fuel resources are disrupted. (U.S. Air Force graphic by Courtney Combs)
