Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins Goes Green

. June 10, 2013

The Robins Air Force Base (RAFB) Museum of Aviation is “going green” with 100% of their power supplied by renewable energy from Flint Energies. With this final agreement between the RAFB Office of Civil Engineering and Flint Energies, the Air Force Base will now be buying green energy for its entire Museum complex.

The green power to be used by the Museum complex is generated at the Houston County landfill located just off Georgia Hwy 247 near Hawkinsville. The landfill generation located there gives Flint members access to 3.2 megawatts of environmentally “green power” at an affordable price. Flint’s new Commercial Green Energy rate will actually create savings for the US Air Force over the prior billing rate. The Museum is the first Flint Energies member to sign up for Commercial Green Energy.

The Robins Air Force Base Museum of Aviation is one of the largest aviation museums in the United States and a major Air Force Heritage, Exhibit and Education Center in the Southeast. Situated on a 51-acre site on Robins Air Force Base, the museum is the second largest museum in the U.S. Air Force with a collection of over 100 aircraft, missiles and cockpits dating from a replica of an early 1896 glider to modern-era aircraft such as the B-1B bomber, the SR-71 Blackbird, the U-2 Dragon Lady and F-15 Eagle. www.museumofaviation.org
