Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) providers know that deploying sustainable energy solutions at the local level is a win-win for military families and our service branch partners.

At Little Rock Air Force Base, Hunt Military Communities (HMC) is partnering with a local utility company to make energy efficiency upgrades to privatized military homes and community infrastructure, generating utility savings that can be used for future community improvements.

HMC recently completed lighting projects to both residences and streetlamps in multiple neighborhoods, generating more than $50,000 a year in reduced energy costs by saving 174,968 kWh. Additional work continues to install water-saving showerheads, aerators and vend misers to the community’s 994 homes, which has already led to over $12,000 in reduced utility costs.

Sustainability solutions like this can be found across the MHPI program, utilizing local partnerships to increase installation resiliency and realize energy savings that will be reinvested back into the community.
