Fort Buchanan ESPC: Parking canopies are one of many photovoltaic projects helping reduce energy consumption on Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico. A total of 21,824 solar photovoltaic panels will produce about 5.5 megawatts of power, which is at least 60 percent of the installation's current power demand at its peak production.
Commercial Utility Program: Huntsville Center’s Commercial Utilities Program provides services for the oversite of utilities consumed at garrisons and other land-holding facilities.
Fort Buchanan ESPC: One of two wind turbines on Fort Buchanan stands next to one of its many solar installations. The two wind turbines will produce an estimated 5 percent of the energy consumed by the installation, and a total of 21,824 solar photovoltaic panels will produce about 5.5 megawatts of power, which is at least 60 percent of the installation’s current power demand at its peak production.
Tooele Army Depot Solar Array: The solar array at the alternative energy corridor at Tooele Army Depot in Utah is a Fiscal Year 2012 Army Energy Conservation Investment Program project. Pictured here in May 2013, the 429 solar dishes are expected to provide 1.5 megawatts of electricity, approximately 30 percent of the depot's annual electric energy need.
ESPC benefits: An energy savings performance contract at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, added a cooling tower to support two 750-ton chillers to operate 24x7x365 in a surety laboratory. The chiller is one element of the project that will help the installation Directorate of Public Works improve overall efficiencies and generate actual savings to the government.
Fort Bliss, Texas: A contractor surveys his work atop a dining facility on Fort Bliss, Texas. Huntsville Center manages multiple types of projects on U.S. Army installations, like this facility-level solar project that was part of an Energy Savings Performance Contract.
Solar Energy: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, working with the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force (EITF), awarded Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOC) to a group of 22 qualified solar technology contractors. Solar energy, like the 55,263 square foot solar wall installed on the Defense Logistics Agency’s Eastern Distribution Center in New Cumberland, Pa., was the second of four technologies awarded under the $7 billion Renewable and Alternative Energy Power Production for DOD Installations MATOC.
Operation and Maintenance Engineering Enhancement: An example of pumps found in a mechanical room in a hospital. The OMEE program maintains the facility and performs preventative maintenance and repairs to these type pumps as well as other mechanical systems.
Wind Power: Wind turbines, similar to the three 275 kilowatt wind turbines erected in May on Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico, are an important piece of the Army’s renewable energy/energy reduction effort. The U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, worked with the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force for renewable energy task orders issued under the $7 billion renewable energy MATOC.
