Nobel prize winning columnist Thomas Friedman blogged this week about the predictable results of dependence on fossil fuels and poorly insulated structures: death and destruction. (By inference, one could add that use of the military-grade Mobile Solar Microgrid, such as the one developed by Pure Power, could help reduce this threat).
“Making our country more energy efficient is not some green feel-good thing. Retired Brig. Gen. Steve Anderson, who was Gen. David Petraeus’s senior logistician in Iraq, e-mailed to say that “over 1,000 Americans have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan hauling fuel to air-condition tents and buildings. If our military would simply insulate their structures, it would save billions of dollars and, more importantly, save lives of truck drivers and escorts. … And will take lots of big fuel trucks (a k a Taliban Targets) off the road, expediting the end of the conflict.”
