Johnson Controls Inc. said Monday it has signed an energy-savings performance contract with the U.S. Navy to improve the energy efficiency of the naval base in Guam.

The project includes a large solar power generation system as well as energy-efficient air conditioning systems. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but the deal is projected to reduce the base’s energy costs by $1.7 million a year.

Johnson Controls“This project is a great example of combining renewable energy technology with innovative energy conservation solutions,” said Mark Wagner, vice president of government affairs with Johnson Controls.

The project is part of meeting the Navy’s achieve a goal of obtaining 25% of its power from renewable sources by 2025, Wagner said.

Contracts with government agencies are expected to be a key source of sales for Johnson Controls thanks to energy-efficiency dollars allocated through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

In the Guam project, more than 9,000 lighting fixtures and 87 air handlers will be retrofitted, and a Johnson Controls building management system will be installed to serve the base’s 49 buildings. The project is being managed by the Milwaukee-based building efficiency division of Johnson Controls. The company will be paid under a long-term contract financed through savings the Navy base will see on its energy costs.
