“The Pentagon and military have seized upon the opportunities to diversify energy sources, to reduce demand, to reduce costs. It’s about reducing costs and improving operational readiness. And when you diversify and become more efficient with your energy and your fuel sources, you get multiple benefits, both in performance and in cost.” -- Sherri Goodman, Scientific American
