John Nixon serves as SEA’s Resource Efficiency Manager for Navy Region Southeast located at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville (NAS JAX), Florida, as part of an on-going reorganization effort, this region includes 16 Navy bases, five of which are covered with a full array of “public works” services from Mr. Nixon. These five bases are: NAS Jacksonville, NS Mayport, NAS Pensacola, CSS Panama City and NWS Charleston. Collectively, these five bases spend approximately $80 million each year on energy and utilities. SEA provides an additional full-time on-site REM at NAS Pensacola to augment Mr. Nixon’s services there.
Mr. Nixon has facilitated over $2.4 million worth of UESC financing. Mr. Nixon has also developed an innovative energy process optimization project covering NAS Jacksonville’s large, industrial, energy-intensive Naval Aviation Depot. Additionally, he has facilitated multiple energy retrofit projects, and with the assistance of SEA staff members, Mr. Nixon has conducted multiple energy awareness training sessions and “tiger team” energy audits of other Navy installations within the Southeast region. Mr. Nixon has saved the Navy over four times his cost during the four years he has been a REM.
