In this video segment from Vegas PBS, visit the largest solar power system installed in the United States as of 2009, at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada. This photovoltaic array can generate up to thirty percent of the base's annual electricity needs. While solar power is clean and renewable, it also makes economic sense. Because Nevada receives abundant sunshine year-round, the base expects to save $1 million annually thanks to the new system.
