Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton

Congeneration and PV ECMs

Location: Camp Pendleton
Owner: U.S. Marine Corps

In 2011 Sain Engineering Associates (SEA) performed a comprehensive energy audit of 248 buildings representing approximately 7,902,013 sq. ft. at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. The primary purpose of the audit was to describe, measure, and identify as many energy conservation measures (ECMs) as could be economically implemented. ECMs identified included:

  • Lighting Upgrades and Controls
  • Water Conservation Measures
  • Building Envelope Measures
  • Hot Water Measures
  • HVAC and Keycard Controls
  • HVAC Measures
  • Domestic Hot Water Measures
  • Cogeneration
  • Solar PV Measures
  • Retro-commissioning
  • SEA identified 17 ECMs with an estimated savings of $7,065,167 per year

Cogeneration

In 2011, Sain Engineering Associates (SEA) performed power generation and cost savings calculations to determine if cogeneration was aviable option for Camp Pendleton. The analysis identified an annual cost savings and an estimated implementation cost for electric generators with heat recovery.

Solar PV

In 2011, Sain Engineering Associates (SEA) performed power generation calculations and cost savings calculations to determine if power generation using solar energy was a viable option for Camp Pendleton. The analysis identified an annual cost savings and an estimated implementation cost for additional roof-mounted solar PV panels.
