Army Corps to reduce energy usage
Monday - 2/2/2009, 3:42pm EST
The Army Corps of Engineers hired SAIC to help it reduce how much energy and water its bases use.
Under the five-year, $50 million deal, the corps wants SAIC to design, construct and promote the use of renewable energy technologies and consumption reducing programs.
SAIC announced in a press release today that the Energy Saving Performance Contract will help Army Corps installations achieve mandated energy reduction goals in accordance with the National Energy Conservation Policy Act. The act calls for a two percent reduction in energy use by federal buildings per year starting in 2003 and going through 2013.
The contract will help eliminate energy waste, increase energy efficiency, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, conserve water resources and improve energy security.
This is the second major energy savings contract awarded in the past few months. The Energy Department awarded 16 companies a spot on a five-year, $80 billion deal in December.
