More than 30 facilities competed in energy saving practices in the 51st Civil Engineer Squadron’s 2nd Annual Energy Cup competition. The nine-month competition wrapped up on
30 June 2017 with the 51st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Headquarters Building 1624 took first place in the competition.
The Competition resulted in the 32 facilities saving 8,110 million British Thermal Units (MBTUs) of energy and over $229,000 in energy costs, which falls in line with the Air Force’s priority to “foster an energy awareness culture.”
“The competition is fair for all-sized facilities, because the FY17 energy consumption is compared to the same facility’s consumption in FY16,” said David Moysey, 51 CES Resource Efficiency Manager. Mr. Moysey went on to say “the competition is a great way to increase awareness in conserving energy and water on the base.”
Other top reducing facilities in this year’s Energy Cup included the 7th Air Force’s B933, 51st Force Support Squadron’s B917, 731st Air Mobility Squadron’s B870, and Dorms 499 and 1346.
Now that the FY17 competition is over, the 51 CES is preparing for the FY18 competition which is slated to begin 1 Oct 17, kicking-off Osan’s Energy Action Month. The 10 competing facilities that did not reduce their energy use from the previous year, will automatically be re-entered in the FY18 Energy Cup competition.
