Southland Energy, a division of Southland Industries, was recently awarded an energy services performance contract (ESPC) for Fort Riley near Junction City, Kansas. The first phase of this multi-phase project is expected to provide more than $37 million in facility improvements across 280 buildings.

Spanning 5.4 million square feet, Southland Energy will complete 15 energy conservation measures across the United States Army installation. Southland’s scope consists of expanding and upgrading the central plants and energy management controls, HVAC upgrades, interior, exterior, street, and airfield LED lighting, as well as boiler and water conservation improvements. In addition, Southland will operate and maintain two central plants and perform controls maintenance. The main energy management controls system will be updated with enhanced cybersecurity protocols to earn Department of Defense accreditation.

“We are excited about making significant progress towards our energy and water conservation goals, while improving the quality of life for Big Red One soldiers and their families,” stated Mike Witmer, Chief of Utilities and Energy Branch. “This project will bring much needed infrastructure improvements and increase operational efficiency. This ESPC, which is paid for through energy and operational savings, allows Fort Riley to maximize our Public Works budget without increasing cost to taxpayers,” he continued.

“Southland Energy is proud to support Fort Riley in their efforts to reduce operating costs, improve infrastructure, and to achieve their energy and water conservation goals.  When complete, this project will significantly improve the facilities that support the soldiers and mission of the 1st Infantry Division,” added Southland Energy Vice President Anthony Roner. Serving over 18,000 active duty service members and 24,000 family members, Fort Riley is home to the 1stInfantry Division, one of the longest serving active duty units of the United States Army.

The improvements will be funded through the $2.4 million in annual cost savings that the project is expected to generate. Over a 22-year period, these savings are anticipated to grow to more than $92 million in savings. The project’s design and construction phases are scheduled to begin June 2017.

Southland Energy, a division of Southland Industries, was recently awarded an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) by the Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program. The contract is awarded to energy services companies (ESCOs) that provide guaranteed cost savings as a result of privately financed energy and water infrastructure improvements to federal facilities, without the need for additional congressional appropriations.  As part of the twenty-two businesses awarded this contract, Southland Energy can implement energy and water efficiency projects for all federal government agencies.

“Southland Energy is honored to be working with the Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program to help achieve energy efficiency and security for the Department of Defense and other federal agencies. With Southland Energy’s extensive performance-based energy efficiency experience and Southland Industries’ 68-year history of engineering, construction, service, and energy service solutions, we are well positioned to bring innovation and excellence to the federal government, while saving energy and reducing costs,” stated Vice President of Southland Energy Anthony Roner.

With the ability to contract directly with the federal government, Southland Energy will help government agencies meet their mandated energy reduction and renewable energy goals, as well as enhance existing facility infrastructure, and achieve energy security.
