RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A retired US Air Force general is visiting Raleigh to highlight the military's role in clean energy innovation and what this means for North Carolina's economy.

Gen. Ron Keys will participate in several events Wednesday with the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce and business owners, economic developers, university researchers, community leaders and elected officials.

Examples of the link between the military and energy innovation in North Carolina include the military's largest thermal neighborhood at Camp Lejeune with solar hot water systems in almost 3,000 off-base homes.

Keys is a member of a panel of senior retired military leaders who study national security issues. A CNA report found that US energy choices are linked to both national and economic security.
