Defense Logistics Agency Energy awards renewable energy contract

Defense Logistics Agency Energy awards renewable energy contract Defense Logistics Agency Energy gave a performance-based contract to improve energy and water savings by more than $2 million per year for the Army Reserve's 99th Regional Support Command. The contract awarded by the Defense Logistics Agency Energy, the biggest logistics combat support agency of the Department of Defense, is part of President Barack Obama's memorandum to reduce energy use and increase energy efficiency in federal buildings.

"This project has all the elements of energy sustainability, including energy reduction, renewables and net zero capacity," said DLA Energy Installation Energy Director Pam Griffith. "The president has a clear mandate for implementation of federal government energy conservation measures and this project with the 99th RSC supports that mandate."

A report by Pew Charitable Trusts said Defense Department renewable energy projects have increased to 700 projects between 2010 to 2012, up 54 percent, the Los Angeles Times reported.

"The military's clean energy installation initiatives are gathering momentum, enhancing base energy security," Phyllis Cuttino, director of Pew's Clean Energy Program, said in a statement.

The energy saved from the project is expected to be the equivalent of the electricity used by 927 homes.
