KINGS BAY, Ga. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast Public Works Department Kings Bay completed construction of an energy conservation project for Naval Submarine Base (NSB) Kings Bay Sept. 16.

The project called for the installion of two solar photovoltaic powered aerators for NSB Kings Bay's Waterfront Waste Water Treatment Plant.

A solar thermal heating system was also installed to augment existing immersion resistance heaters supporting several diesel emergency power generators. These improvements are expected to provide an estimated annual electric savings of 424,000 kilowatt-hours.

"The $660,000 project was made possible by the Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP), a military construction funded program used specifically to improve energy efficiency of Department of Defense facilities while reducing associated utility energy and non-energy related costs," said NAVFAC Southeast Energy Projects Engineer Andrew Rubio. "ECIP projects focus on energy and water savings, implementing renewable energy, and converting systems to cleaner energy sources."

Rubio said this project will make significant contributions toward the mandated requirements of the Energy Independence Security Act of 2007 and Executive Order 13423 which require specific reductions in energy use in federal facilities of at least 30 percent, by October 2014.
