Twentynine Palms, California

In FY 2009, Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) Twentynine Palms  broadened its overall utility and energy management programs by investing $16.1  million in new PV applications and continued energy efficiency improvements.  Energy efficiency efforts included 14 energy management control system and  chilled water conservation projects, 10 interior and exterior lighting upgrade  projects, and complete utility metering. These efforts saved 12.8 billion Btu in  FY 2009 and reduced energy intensity more than 15% from the FY 2003 baseline.  Two PV sunshade projects provide annual generation of 610 million Btu, with  exploration of wind and geothermal resources underway. Four water conservation  projects replaced 80,000 square feet of grass with rockscape, saving almost 2.2  million gallons of water each year. Water consumption was reduced more than 7%  from the FY 2007 baseline. MCAGCC also continued its Building Energy Monitor  program, assigning individuals from every directorate and tenant command to  inspect their respective buildings, report problems that create inefficient  operations, and educate building tenants on energy awareness.
