US military installations support the troops protecting America’s people and our National interests at home and abroad.
The US Energy Department has been attempting to trim the Federal government’s annual energy bill and is actively working with our military bases to reach specific energy and greenhouse gas reduction targets.
An important function on any military base is to provide adequate housing for our personnel. Over time, some bases have found that their existing barracks are no longer sufficient to accommodate their personnel needs. As they look to renovate and add new buildings to these bases, the US military is turning to geothermal to handle their comfort air needs, with some renovations using multiple borefields.
Greensleeves assisted in some of these renovations that utilized multiple borefields. The controls software runs the systems using an optimized sequence to meet the needs of the personnel, ensure the thermal battery remains at ideal capacity, while reducing pumping costs and overall system energy consumption.
Optimizing our US military installations – one more way our US military and Department of Energy are fulfilling today’s mission at less cost for a better future.
