    U.S. Marine Corps, Constellation, P&G Collaborate to Achieve Navy’s First ‘Net Zero’ Energy Military Base

    Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) has awarded a $170 million, 23-year energy savings performance contract to Constellation, a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation, for an energy conservation and distributed generation project that will enable the Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) in Albany, Ga., to reduce energy use, increase energy security, and meet energy demands from renewable sources. The project includes the installation of an 8.5-megawatt biomass-fueled, steam-to-electricity (STE) generator, high-efficiency transformers, lighting and boiler upgrades, as well as system controls for a landfill gas electricity generator and centralized monitoring and operation of electricity generation and distribution for the base.
