Renewable Energy Magazine – Lendlease and Ameresco partner on clean energy modernisation project at Hickam Communities
The project at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) Air Force Base in Hawaii, which brings in additional private capital without the need of congressional appropriations, will provide holistic energy solutions to modernise over 2,500 privatised military housing units, and is expected to generate $13 million in annual cost savings that would be used to pay for the improvements, financing costs, and operations and maintenance services over the 25-year performance period. This project further demonstrates the success of the Military Housing Privatisation Initiative (MHPI). It includes a 25-year O&M service agreement to assure the performance and savings.
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Ameresco on this important sustainability initiative to modernise our 2,500 homes at Hickam Communities” said Carolyn Tregarthen, Managing Director for Lendlease Communities. “Making HVAC systems more energy-efficient, installing smart home energy thermostats, enhancing water systems, and implementing LED lighting are just a few examples of how we’re working closely with Ameresco to make our military housing communities more environmentally resilient in order to provide improved health and quality of life for our residents.”
