As part of the Navy's plan to convert at least 50% of its energy demands to alternative sources by 2020, the branch may cover part of Pearl Harbor with solar panels. The 4000-foot, unused runway in the center of Pearl Harbor's military base is a good location for the solar project and is "critically important to achieving renewable energy mandates," according to a Navy spokeswoman. American history aficionados and the Pacific Aviation Museum, however, say the site should be preserved as sacred ground.
