The Military Housing Association’s member companies share a commitment to meeting Department of Defense (DOD) energy conservation goals. By ensuring our energy independence, we can protect U.S. national security and maintain our military’s readiness.

To meet these goals, Corvias has continued to make strides toward achieving U.S. Army’s objectives and incorporating energy efficiency upgrades at the company’s 22,000 homes across seven military installations. The company’s most recent energy-saving upgrades will provide long-term savings, lessen environmental impacts, and enhance the on-base housing experience.

“Corvias continually develops innovative plans to support the needs of our Army partners and better the communities in which we operate,” said Pablo Varela, Senior Vice President, Renewable Energy & Utilities Management. “Whether it is in the form of water and energy efficiency upgrades or renewable energy, such as geothermals, solar energy, and other innovative solutions, all efforts advance the Army’s readiness and resiliency goals and champion the Army’s global commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and reliance on natural resources.”

Corvias’ recent projects include the installation of more than 50,000 electricity and water saving devices across more than 15,000 military homes. The project is projected to save $6 million, while providing military families with higher quality-of-life and modernized homes.

Corvias has also expanded on its 34MW of solar energy production, with more than 70MW of ground mount solar currently in development. The project is estimated to power nearly 13,000 homes. Other upgrades include an expansion of the geothermal heat pump project, that has saved more than 75 million gallons of water and more than 9.5 million kWh of energy.

In the future, Corvias plans to continue projects to expand energy efficiency across its portfolio. Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) will help eliminate fiscal restraints and allow the company to take advantage of federal funding for clean energy.

Innovative systems to address energy efficiency in on-base military housing is made possible through the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) program. The MHPI program allows companies like Corvias to lend their private-sector expertise to the DOD and service branches, to help them meet energy savings goals and house military members and their families.
