President Barack Obama plans to nominate retired Vice Admiral Dennis McGinn as assistant secretary of the U.S. Navy for energy, installations and environment.
McGinn is president of the American Council on Renewable Energy, a Washington-based non-profit that promotes the use of solar and wind power as well as biofuels. He served in the Navy for 35 years where he was a test pilot and commanded an aircraft carrier, the White House said today in a statement.
