Balfour Beatty Communities (BBC) and ENGIE Services U.S., a leading low-carbon energy and services provider, recently completed $12 million in energy efficiency improvements to more than 1,000 homes at Fort Eustis and Fort Story. These upgrades facilitated by the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) enhance the resident experience, reduce carbon emissions, and generate energy savings to fund future improvements.
On-base housing improvements include the addition of 77,000 energy-efficient lighting and fixture upgrades, 475 high-efficiency heat pump systems, 995 smart home thermostats, 1,500 bathroom humidistats and much more. Over 900 homes received weatherization updates as well, including energy-efficient exhaust vent caps amongst other upgrades.
“We are proud to have completed this project, which improves critical systems in the homes of military families at Fort Eustis and Fort Story” said Mark Lavin, executive vice president for Balfour Beatty Communities. “Our work with ENGIE is making these military housing communities more resilient and is generating utility savings that will be used to further improve these homes as part of our long-term reinvestment effort.”
MHPI partners like BBC will continue to deliver solutions to strengthen the sustainability and resiliency of military housing communities and installations across the country.
