Based in Charleston, South Carolina Hannah Solar Government Services, a small business owned by disabled veterans (SDVOSB) renewable energy company has been selected to design, design and purchase materials for a 1.08 MW photovoltaic system for the US Navy at Naval Base Guam.
Guam Naval Base is a joint strategic US naval base located in the Northern Mariana Islands of the Pacific Ocean. Its tenants include several US Navy submarines, a coast guard, and nearly 30 other orders. Their strategic location is vital to protecting the interests of the United States and its allies since 1944.
The design of the ground-based photovoltaic solar power system will result in significant reductions in the costs incurred on the base each year using traditional energy sources. HSGS has completed several projects at U.S. military installations at home and abroad, including Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Marine Corps Lejeune Base Camp, and Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Site on Isle of Meck, among others.
“Naval Station Guam provides essential support and protection to the United States, and we are honored to be able to provide them with the design and support for this ground-based solar system. Said Col. (RET.) Dave McNeil, President and CEO of HSGS.
HSGS is a veteran-owned company leading the way in global energy security by designing and building renewable energy and microgrid systems. HSGS specializes in the development, design, installation and maintenance of commercial and utility scale solar PV system energy storage projects for government, commercial and utility customers.

Have you visited our YouTube page?
We have a ton of video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we made our debut Power forward! – a collaboration with BayWa re to discuss higher level industrial topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer term side project is Field – in which we have delicate discussions with manufacturers and suppliers of solar energy about their new technologies and ideas so that you don’t have to. We discussed everything from residential railless bridge attachment and domestic solar financing To stacking of large-scale energy storage values and new house focused on public services solar micro-grids + storage.
We also publish our Project of the year ads out there! Interviews with this year’s winners will take place starting the week of November 8. Head over there and subscribe today to stay up to date on all of this extra stuff.
