The Mayport Naval Station in Jacksonville, FL, will save about $600,000 annually through a water and energy efficiency program, according to Jacksonville.com.
The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast awarded a $12.8 million contract last week to TECO Inc., which is based in Tampa. The project, which is slated to be done by November, 2017, will impact about 50 facilities.
The upgrade will feature upgrades to interior and exterior lighting, an expansion of the energy management and control system and replacement of transformers to the HVAC system. Real-time tracking of energy use will be possible when the upgrade is complete.
The system also will save about 2.9 million gallons of water annually, the story said.
Schneider Electric and the U.S. Navy said this spring that they are working together on infrastructure improvement projects under an energy savings performance contract (ESPC) at the Naval Base Coronado and Naval Base San Clemente Island. The improvements are expected to generate $114 million during the 19-year contract term.
