Participants of the strategic exercises “Kavkaz-2020” will be provided with ecologically clean energy, the Defense Ministry told Izvestia. Wind generators and solar power plants are deployed in the fields. Command posts, weapons systems and military equipment, tent camps will receive energy from them.
General’s rehearsal: the United States has practiced strikes on Russian territory According to the military, the activity of NATO aviation near the borders of the Russian Federation has sharply increased
Unlike conventional diesel generators, the new power supply systems do not unmask the positions of the troops. Also, new items will save significant funds, experts say.
“The exercises will test in practice how solar and wind systems can meet the needs of the troops. And diesel fuel, which will save these energy sources, is better spent on refueling combat vehicles. In any case, following the results of the maneuvers, manuals and other guiding documents on the use of solar and wind power stations will be written, ”said Colonel Alexander Perendzhiev, associate professor of the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics.
During the exercise, the military will check how effectively wind and solar generators can be used in the army and what facilities they can provide with stable electricity.
