DOE Sends Energy Saving Teams to Military Facilities in Four States
DOE deployed Energy Saving Teams to military facilities in Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, and Ohio on December 14th to identify low-cost and no-cost measures to save energy and money. The energy assessments are part of DOE's "Easy Ways to Save Energy" campaign, which includes sending 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.
The Energy Saving Teams are at Fort Bragg, North Carolina; Fort Gordon, Georgia; the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Crane, Indiana; and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (AFB) in Dayton, Ohio. Fort Bragg employs about 51,000 soldiers and civilians and includes 5,447 buildings over more 50 square miles. Fort Gordon covers 87.5 square miles and has a workforce of more than 16,600 civilians and soldiers. The NSWC Crane Division is the third largest U.S. Navy installation in the world, covering 100 square miles. Wright-Patterson AFB is the largest U.S. Air Force base in the United States, employing about 22,000 people.
