The Pentagon is using the Pentagon’s $200 million solar fleet to expand its fleet, which includes a fleet of 20,000 electric vehicles.
The electric vehicle program will boost the number of commercial vehicles that can be shipped to the U.S. via rail.
The Pentagon has previously used solar-powered trains to deliver cargo.
This year, the Navy will purchase 20,500 solar- and wind-powered buses and train sets.
The Department of Defense is looking to reduce fuel costs by 20% by using the electric vehicles to transport its cargo.
“The solar-electric electric trains, which are powered by a solar battery, can be used to carry cargo and have a range of up to 1,000 miles (1,800 kilometers),” the Navy said in a statement.
The Solar Dynamics, Inc. subsidiary of Solar Dynamics Corp. is building the vehicles, and the Navy is in talks with the Chinese company to supply the battery pack and power the train sets, according to a Navy official.
The company says that the electric train set will be deployed from 2021.
The Navy’s solar-driven trains will be equipped with batteries that store energy from sunlight to power the batteries.
The solar-power trains are able to travel at up to 70 miles per hour, compared to the rail cars that the Navy has in service, the official said.
The new fleet of electric vehicles could be the first step in using solar technology to power a wider array of civilian and military vehicles, according the official.
In 2020, the U,S.
Navy will start using a new fleet-wide fleet of 7,000 solar- powered rail cars and electric buses to deliver military cargo to the Navy’s Naval Air Station in Key West, Florida.
The first electric train will be delivered in 2021.
Solar-powered train trains will begin rolling out of the Navy by 2021.
At this point, it will be up to the federal government to decide which of the new electric trains will ultimately make it to the fleet, the military official said in an interview with Axios.
The military also plans to expand the use of solar-charged batteries for future passenger vehicles, with the goal of producing 100,000 batteries per year by 2030, according an official with the Naval Air Systems Command, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the plans publicly.
