Coast Guard Signs Energy Savings Contract with Siemens
The United States Coast Guard has awarded a $5.3 million task order to Siemens Government Technologies to install and implement energy-conserving upgrades at the US Coast Guard Base in Elizabeth City, NC.
Using an energy savings performance contract (ESPC) from the Department of Energy, the cost of the project will be funded by the energy savings guaranteed by Siemens.
The energy conservation upgrades include boiler and burner conversions for heating improvements, installing a building automation system across the base, mechanical HVAC improvements and water conservation measures, which are estimated to generate energy savings on average of $540,000 annually over the 14-year contract term.
The project is expected to reduce electricity consumption on the base by more than 1.1 million kWh annually, while also eliminating 78,000 gallons of fuel oil use and 32,000 gallons of liquid propane use each year. In addition, water conservation initiatives are anticipated to save over 3 million gallons of water.
