Honeywell Performs for DOD Energy Savings

Long before talks of energy stimulus began echoing down Pentagon halls, Honeywell engineers were bringing energy savings technologies to the DOD en masse. The company recently announced the award of an Energy Savings Performance contract (ESPC) with the Army Corps of Engineers to continue doing for the Army what it's been doing for the other services:

Honeywell has ... implemented energy conservation measures for the Air Force and Navy. Combined, the company's DOD work will provide around $540 million in guaranteed savings. Typical improvements include replacing and upgrading heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) equipment, installing centralized building automation systems, replacing outdated fixtures with energy-efficient lighting, tightening building envelopes through new windows and doors, and upgrading electrical systems. Renewable energy technology like solar panels and biomass boilers is frequently employed as well.

In case you can't tell, that's not high tech stuff; that's low hanging fruit by the bushel. And it pays for itself, guaranteed. Bravo!
