The U.S. Army has been at work trying to make some of its command installations more energy efficient, with the ultimate aim of using no more energy than they produce. The progress made so far has led the Army to expand the net-zero program to all 156 installations by the end of this year. In addition to energy self-reliance, the program includes water recycling and zero waste. Meanwhile, the General Services Administration is implementing its own version of net-zero initiatives at civilian government facilities, including a $15 million upgrade for its first net-zero facility in Colorado.
