USAF Looks To Offer More Land:

The Air Force Real Property Agency is working to convert underutilized land and infrastructure into value for the Air Force at installations across the country using the enhanced use leasing program. This is the program already used at Kirtland AFB, N.M., to launch development of an academic research facility. Air Force officials are developing enhanced use lease arrangements at Hill AFB, Utah; Patrick AFB, Fla.; Tinker AFB, Okla.; and Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. An effort under consideration by Air Combat Command would lease approximately 6,000 acres with mothballed radar facilities as potential sites for renewable energy equipment. ACC says the old radar sites are ideal for something like wind farms because they are at high altitude.
