Key U.S. Navy family housing partner Balfour Beatty Communities recently completed two major projects in the company’s Navy housing portfolio to enhance energy resilience and support the Service’s climate goals.

The projects included a multi-year installation of rooftop solar systems to support alternative energy solutions across Navy housing communities. Installations were made at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Naval Air Station Key West, Naval Air Station Pensacola, Naval Air Station Whiting Field, and Naval Station Mayport. The project supports 10.55 megawatts of power and is now fully operational, helping to support BBC’s company-wide efforts to promote renewable energy. This month, the company continued to advance solar-energy projects, starting work on a rooftop solar project at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine. The project will bring almost 1 megawatt of capacity to the housing community.

To further improve energy resilience, the Balfour Beatty Communities also announced the completion of a $31 million Energy Savings and Performance Contract (ESPC) project. Delivered in partnership with ENGIE Services U.S., family housing upgrades include high-efficiency HVAC systems, improved weatherization sealing, new water fixtures, and LED lighting in more than 5,000 homes. The measures support U.S. Navy climate goals, while reducing energy and water consumption at 11 Navy installations across the Southeast. In total, the project is expected to generate close to $3 million in utility savings, which will be reinvested in military housing communities.

“These projects not only reflect our dedication to innovative investment in military housing but also our commitment to advancing the Navy’s resiliency and energy security goals,” stated Ed Lopes, Vice President of Project Development for Balfour Beatty Communities’ Navy housing portfolio. “These efforts will also generate long-term value as utility savings are reinvested into our communities for renovations and other quality of life improvements for our service members and their families.”
