Army's largest renewable energy project part of $61 million energy
By ASA (IE&E) and IMCOM Public Affairs www.army.mil January 25, 2012WASHINGTON -- The Army has awarded three Energy Savings Performance Contracts with a total value of $61 million, including one that will result in the largest renewable energy project executed to date by the Army.
These three projects will save the Army 267 billion British thermal units, or BTUs, annually and will provide the Army with 8.2-megawatts of renewable power capacity.
The White Sands Missile Range project, awarded last December, will provide the Army with 4.44-megawatts of installed photovoltaic capacity. The $16.8 million contract with Siemens Government Technologies will generate more than 10 percent of the installation's electrical energy consumption via solar renewable energy by the end of 2012, saving 10 million kilowatt hours of electricity and $930,000 annually.
