DOE Sends Energy Saving Team to Army Arsenal in Alabama
A federal Energy Saving Team visited a U.S. Army arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, on December 13th to identify low-cost and no-cost measures to save energy and money. The no-cost energy assessment is part of DOE's "Easy Ways to Save Energy" campaign, which in the coming months will send Energy Saving Teams to the 30 largest federal facilities and the top 200 energy-intensive manufacturing facilities in the United States. See the DOE press release.
Redstone Arsenal sits on 40,000 acres and includes 11.7 million square feet of building space, including administrative buildings, laboratories, flight test ranges, and other specialized buildings and equipment. The arsenal employs about 19,000 federal government and contract workers. See the U.S. Army Web site.
