Abstract : The 78th Civil Engineer Group, Sustainment and Restoration (78 CEG/CEIER) has conducted this Environmental Assessment (EA) pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to identify and assess potential impacts of the Proposed Action and reasonable Alternatives as described in the following paragraphs. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to develop renewable energy generation Enhanced Use Lease (EUL) facilities on Robins AFB to comply with Federal mandates and in accordance with the U. S. Air Force Energy Strategic Plan (USAF, 2013). The Base is meeting its current renewable energy goal through the Georgia Power Green Energy Program, in which green energy generated elsewhere is purchased by the Base. The Proposed Action is needed to develop a more permanent and secure solution for complying with renewable energy mandates by generating renewable energy on nonexcess Base property.
