Enable readiness, save energy

October each year is Energy Action Month. This year’s theme is “Energy Resilience Enables Army Readiness”

The Army’s goal is to ensure the capability of uninterrupted mission-essential operations for a minimum of 14 days without resupply of fuel and water. - ENERGY RESILIENCE!

The Army can achieve this capability by developing reserves of energy and water through conservation of existing resources and the development of energy reduction programs and projects and in developing alternative energy sources in conjunction with the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP)

Here at Carlisle Barracks we will be hosting a “Resource Efficiency Management” (REM) team later this month to conduct an Energy Audit of all the prime energy-consuming facilities on post.  

We can all help in this mission by doing little things like turning off unneeded lights, replacing burned out light bulbs with the new, extremely efficient and long-life LED bulbs and turning off PCs and monitors at the end of the day.

Have a local utility company do an energy audit of your home and implement their recommendations.

Energy is a critical enabler of military capability. We can all participate in keeping “Army Strong”! Promote “Energy Awareness.”
