Dayton Power and Light (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), is presenting Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) with an energy efficiency rebate of $1 million in total for energy upgrades that are improving the environment. With guidance from DP&L, the base implemented several initiatives over consecutive years resulting in the cumulative savings.
"We are excited to receive our million dollar rebate from DP&L,” said Colonel John Devillier, commander of the 88th Air Base Wing. “For every dollar we save in energy reduction, we can reallocate to other important areas of our mission."
WPAFB has improved the energy efficiency at 100 buildings on-base through a variety of enhancements, including upgraded lighting, energy efficient building design and construction and installing high-efficiency motors, and heating/air conditioning systems.
By making these changes, WPAFB will realize 16,471,946 kilowatt hours per year in energy savings.
Additionally, the environmental impact is equivalent to powering 1,562 homes, taking 2,391 cars off the road and preserving 9,310 acres of forest. The federal government will save $1 million a year in energy costs.
“Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is a leader when it comes to the defense of our country and is taking action to protect the environment by adopting these energy-saving measures basewide,” said DP&L President and CEO Tom Raga. “DP&L is honored to partner with the Wright-Patterson Energy Management Team and recognize the achievement of $1 million in total energy efficiency rebates.”
