Happening Now
3/2 Marines Utilizing GREENS during ITX
  • Marines with 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment (3/2) utilized the Ground Renewable Expeditionary Energy Network System (GREENS) at Camp Wilson, Twentynine Palms, CA during the Integrated Training Exercise (ITX).
  • For a week before receiving generators from the ITX issue point, 3/2 powered vital equipment utilizing GREENS.
  • Following receipt of generators, a Quonset hut providing relay switches lost power and the GREENS continued to provide power to that building for uninterrupted operations.
