Destin, Florida’s Hurlburt Field will undergo a comprehensive energy infrastructure upgrade. The project, led by Schneider Electric, will modernize infrastructure that supports critical power supply and grid stability needs at the base, which is home to the US Air Force’s Special Operations Command (HQ AFSOC). Through the $22.6 million Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) with Schneider Electric, the project will reduce Hurlburt Field’s energy costs by 17.7% – resulting in $1.5 million in savings annually over the 22-year contract term for the US Defense Department (DoD).
